Hot Dish ~ Shrimp Lo Mein

Beren's working late and my kids are out & about so I'm on my own for dinner tonight. No problem, I'm looking forward to whipping up this quick & easy shrimp recipe I found on the Weight Watchers site. This sounds so much better than the restaurant version which would cost me 8 POINTS instead of 3 and this one has tons more veggies. Yummy!

Shrimp Lo Mein
POINTS® Value: 3
Servings: 6


8 oz House Foods Tofu shirataki - noodle shape
16 oz shrimp, frozen, thawed
3 tbsp teriyaki sauce
18 oz Birds Eye Oriental Style Vegetables In Garlic Soy Sauce, Frozen
1 cup(s) edamame (shelled)
1 tbsp cornstarch


Microwave noodles for 1 minute; set aside. Place shrimp in a small bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce; set aside.

Place mixed vegetables and edamame in a large nonstick skillet with 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat for 7 minutes or until cooked through.

Stir shrimp into vegetable mixture; cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until shrimp is pink and cooked through.

Stir together remaining 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce and the cornstarch, then stir into the mixture in the skillet and cook until warmed through.

Oh, and here's a pic of me taken today presumably at that dreaded WW weigh-in weight. *groan* Why is it that I always think I look better/thinner than I actually do? Hate the honesty of the camera!


  1. Oh that sounds soooo lush, may have to try that one myself. Mwah xx

  2. ooooh, minus the shrimp, i am allll over that dish! sounds yummy. before pictures are always brutal, but in no time you'll be taking a much different 'after' picture.
