Shrimp Lo Mein w/ Miracle Noodles

Aside from my mother's soul-food, my favorite type of food is Asian - Asian Fusion, Chinese, Thai, you name it. So, as you might imagine, I love to cook Asian-style dishes at home. Like many awesome comfort foods, Asian dishes are usually filled with a ton of carbs (e.g., noodles, rice, sugar) so I was happy to remake Lo Mein with some of my favorite low-carb and keto-friendly substitutes. Even though I paired this with shrimp (because it's quick to cook), you can add in whichever protein that you wish. You should also note that the habaneros are super optional! I used 3 because my husband dared me to, but the average person might find that way too spicy. You should omit them or just use one.

Ingredients

2 packages of Miracle Noodle Spaghetti, rinsed and cut in half

Sauce

  • 1 tbsp Swerve, granulated
  • 1/2 cup dark soy sauce (This is a bit saltier than regular soy sauce and also know as Sushi Soy Sauce)
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce (This is the regular soy sauce that you typically buy - it is different from soy sauce that has "light sodium")
  • 6 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1.5 tsp minced ginger
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar

Note. If you do not have (and don't want to get) light and dark soy sauce then 3/4 cups of light soy sauce (what most people have at home) will work.
