Delicious Asian Style Chinese Shrimp Salad Recipe

If you like shrimp, I think you will enjoy this easy to make recipe. I got this recipe from the following cookbook and altered it slightly to suit my needs and tastes. This recipe is a combination of a salad and a stir fry and is easy to make. I had some fresh broccoli on hand so I threw some of that in to add more substance.

Cookbook: Simply Quick & Easy Recipes by: Parragon Publishing, ISBN 1-84273-218-8 which happens to be one of my favorite hardcover cookbooks!

Chinese Shrimp Salad Recipe

8 ounces thin egg noodles
2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups beansprouts
1 mango, sliced
4 onions, sliced
1 small radish, thinly sliced
12 to 14 ounces peeled and cooked medium sized shrimp
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Place your egg noodles in a large mixing bowl and pour over enough boiling water to cover. Leave stand for 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the noodles and pat away any moisture with paper towels. Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok. Add the noodles and stir-fry for 5 minutes, tossing frequently. Remove the wok from the heat and stir in the sesame oil, sesame seeds and beansprouts, tossing to mix well.

In a separate bowl, mix together the sliced mango, onions, radishes, shrimp and soy sauce. Toss the shrimp mixture with the noodles. Serve immediately.
