The Best Garlic Noodles And Shrimp

There really aren’t many better food combos like that of noodles and shrimp. What’s better than that? You guessed it! Garlic noodles with shrimp. Let’s get right down to it. No fluff or filler!

  • 1 lb. lo mein noodles or spaghetti noodles
  • 1 lb. fresh peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 10-15 minced garlic cloves
  • 4-5 chopped spring onions
  • chopped cilantro
  • 3/4 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Step By Step Instructions

Bring the noodles to a boil in a pot of water. Refer to the instructions on the package for cook time. Do not add oil. This is a waste of good oil and does prevent the noodles from sticking together. Mixing while it cooks does.

Chop the cilantro, garlic, and spring onions. Take this time to season your shrimp with salt and pepper. I typically don’t use salt as the soy sauce and oyster sauce have enough sodium as it is and I don’t like waking up with sausage fingers the next morning. Bring a pan up to medium heat to sauté everything as the noodles cook.

Sauté the onions and garlic for about 2 minutes in the olive oil. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Be careful! These little boogers cook quickly and go from done to overdone pretty fast. Add the cilantro and remove from the heat. Here’s where you add the red pepper flakes as well.

Remove the noodles and drain them really well. If you have a colander, use it! Grab a wok or wok-style pot, bring it up to medium heat, and add the butter. If you don’t have one, use your largest pan so you can toss everything easily.

Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, noodles and shrimp to the pot. Give it a good toss and WHAM! You did it. Serve ’em up and enjoy. When you are finished, make sure you give your significant other a huge, wet, garlicky kiss! They’ll appreciate it. And don’t worry when you run out. Every burp for the next 3 days will remind you of how good this was. Buen provecho!

Ep. 61: Pamela, Distance Learning In Mexico, And Chinese Food

In this episode, I chat with Pamela Buenrostro about how the global pandemic is affecting the education system in Mexico and Chinese food. The Mexican education system does not have all of the same resources that we have in the United States so it’s interesting to get some perspective from a teacher in another country. In addition, I also recorded an episode with her in Spanish so if you would rather hear that one or know someone who will, let them know. And who knows, I might just launch EdTech Bites Español. Buen provecho!

Ep. 58: Distance Learning Resources With Tisha and Jacob

This episode is the audio from a livestream I held with Tisha Poncio and Jacob Luevano a couple of weeks ago. We streamed this webinar through Periscope when school closures were announced. Our goal was to curate a list of tools for educators to use with their students for distance learning. Going through an overwhelming list of tweets and posts through social media platforms can be extremely overwhelming, which is why we hosted this. As you are going through your distance learning with your students, you might realize that you’re already using some of these tools. We are going through best practices with these tools as well as different ways to use them. So strap in (as I know you’re not going anywhere), and hear what we have to say about some of our favorite tools for distance learning. Buen provecho!

Resources For Digital Learning and Distance Learning

With recent school closures all over the country, I decided to reach out to Tisha Poncio and Jacob Luevano to put together some resources. We connected, put together a list (that’s not too overwhelming) and connected. We streamed this through Periscope and recorded the conversation as well. A full list of resources is available on Tisha’s blog. Click the link to see these and check out our discussion on YouTube below as well.
