Stir Fried Zucchini Noodles
These stir-fried zucchini noodles are a low carb substitute for the popular Chinese lo mein or chow mein.
It’s light, healthy, and still super tasty. I added shrimp and carrots to mine, but other proteins and vegetables work as well.
I’ve owned my vegetable spiralizer* for nearly two months now and I’m still very satisfied with my purchase. I just love making vegetable noodles and coming up with more recipe ideas.
Stir-fried noodles is a comfort food I grew up eating, but I don’t make it too often. This zucchini noodle version allows me to enjoy all the great flavors of the dish without all the heavy carbs. I especially love eating it for lunch because it fills me just enough and doesn’t leave me in a food coma after.

- 2 medium zucchinis spiralized (see note)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 lb shrimp (see note)
- 2 carrots thinly sliced or spiralized (see note)
- 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
In a large pan or wok, add 1 tbsp olive oil and turn stove to medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add in raw protein. Stir fry until protein is cooked. Remove and set aside.
Add in remaining olive oil. When the oil is hot, add in zucchini, carrots or any other vegetables you are using. Add in soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil, stirring constantly so that noodles cook evenly. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. When zucchini noodles are just about cooked, add protein back in and stir a few times until everything is thoroughly mixed. Serve while warm.
- Try to choose thin zucchini as they are easier to spiralize.
- I like to use shrimp, but you can opt for other proteins like chicken.
- In addition to carrots, you can also add other vegetables like string beans, broccoli, etc.
