To make the sauce, stir all the ingredients together in a medium

Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil. Cook the egg noodles

When ready to cook, heat a large wok or deep skillet over high heat.
Add the 3 tablespoons canola oil and swirl to coat; heat the oil
until it ripples. Add the shrimp and cook, tossing, 3 to 4 minutes.
In order, add the shiitakes, oyster mushrooms, bean sprouts, and
peas, tossing after each addition. Add the noodles and pour in the
