Reviews for Shrimp Lo Mein
"I thought it would be weird to put so much ketchup in the recipe, but tried it anyway and it turned out pretty good. I added more cashews than the recipe called for, just because the hubby likes them. I used fresh pineapple chunks instead of canned and it ended up not tasting right. It was way too tangy for the rest of the recipe. Next time I will try the canned pineapple or omit it altogether."
"Amazing! I used chicken instead of shrimp and it was delicious! I will make it again."
"This recipe turned out great! I had udon noodles on hand, so I used those. The sauce had a great, tangy flavor."
"Very good, I didn't have the nuts but it turns out great!! It tasted like it was made from an Asian restaurant! :)"
"I didn't use pineapple or cashews, next time will add more veggies and make a little bit more sauce...very delicious!"
