Set aside. Heat a wok over high heat, then add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of minced ginger and half a bunch of sliced scallions. Saute for 30 seconds, then add 1 pound of small peeled and deveined shrimp. When the shrimp start to turn pink and curl up, transfer to a plate, and set aside.

Add another tablespoon of vegetable oil to the hot wok and add 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of minced ginger and half a bunch of sliced scallions. Saute for half a minute, then add 1 large shredded carrot, 1 cup of thinly sliced white mushrooms, 2 thinly sliced stalks of celery and 1/4 head of finely shredded Napa cabbage. Saute for four to five minutes until the vegetables begin to brown.

Dissolve 2 tablespoons of cornstarch into 2 tablespoons of cold water, then stir into the sauce. Add the sauce to the hot wok, bring to a simmer, then add the reserved shrimp and pre-cooked Chinese egg noodles. Toss wok contents to coat with the sauce before serving.
