Shrimp Lo Mein

Trust me, there are noodles under there.  I went with fettuccine noodles this time.  In a departure from my usual practice of pouring a few ounces of olive oil into the pasta water I used sesame oil instead.  I think the aroma alone was worth it.

I peeled the shells from the raw shrimp and made a stock that was the base for the sweet chili sauce the shrimp and broccoli were tossed with.  Shrimp turn rubbery if they are overcooked so I cooked them first to a half done stage and set them aside, then cooked the veggies until they were close. The shrimp were added back to the wok and the sauce was spooned over the mix and then served atop the noodles.
