Combination Seafood Chow Mein is my  recipe of the day with the  blogging  group Fish Friday Foodies.

We get together once a month  to post on various seafood topics. It was  my turn to host so I chose the topic of copycat seafood restaurant recipes. This was done a number of months in  advance and it  is fortunate to be sharing this type  of recipe, at least I think, since we need to shelter in and  get our restaurant favorites at home.

You may  have had the  dried-fried chow  mein noodles from  a can but that’s not what we are doing  here.

This is done  in the  pan-fried noodles style, which takes fresh  or dried noodles, boil and drain them, then  pile as a pancake in a skillet  and fry  until it crisps up on  the bottom.

If you have never tried this way before, I promise you, you  will like  this so much better. It’s  one  of Bill’s fav Asian recipes.

I used a mix of  shrimp and scallops  which I had  the  fishmonger pack  up for me. As well, there  was a small package of mixed seafood in the  freezer case  which I thawed and added  in. Those  will contain various  seafood such as shrimp,  mussels, sometimes  oysters and squid  or scallops.

The sauce is easily made ahead if you want to do that to save some time during the dinner hour.   You can  mix it up, keep in a small canning  jar for about a week. Just stir  it  up before using,  the same as if  you had a bottle of ready made sauce from the market on hand.

  1. I love making Chinese takeout at home. This sounds delicious with the shrimp and scallops. I like to throw in those frozen bags of mixed seafood too!

  2. As you know we love Asian food in this house and this recipe is so appealing to me. Thanks so much for hosting this month and choosing such a fun, appropriate topic.

  3. I have been trying to buy a bag of frozen mixed seafood for weeks now! My local supermarket either hasn’t been getting new stock or perhaps since I go so rarely, I keep missing the window of availability. Either way, it stays on the shopping list and someday, I will make this recipe! Looks delish, Sue!

    • The market I have been buying a lot of that from has been crowded for the space it has with some traffic bottlenecks to certain parts of the store so I may be out for awhile. Food bloggers really feel the pain of restricted grocery shopping! I really miss the garage at Findlay Market- which I loved on weekends. So summer is going to bite. Too crazy on the days when they pull in with produce for me right now.
