shrimp pad thai

makes 3 to 4 servings

12 oz. rice noodles
1 1/2 Tbsp. fish sauce
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
juice of 1 lime
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. canola oil
16 uncooked shrimp, peeled but with tails intact
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 fresh green chili, deseeded and thinly sliced
2 eggs, lightly beatened
2 scallions, sliced
3 cups bean sprouts
3 Tbsp. dry roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
3 Tbsp. cilantro

1. Soak the noodles in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drain.
2. Whisk together fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, and brown sugar in a small bowl.
3. Heat wok on high and then add 1 Tbsp. of the oil. Stir-fry shrimp for about 2 minutes until pink. Remove shrimp from wok and set aside.
4. Heat remaining Tbsp. of oil in wok and stir-fry the garlic and chili for 30 seconds.
5. Add the noodles and stir0fry for 30 seconds.
6. Push the noodles to the side of the wok and add the eggs and cook them until they are set. Stir eggs into noodles.
7. Add the sauce mixture and the shrimp and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
8. Add the bean sprouts and peanuts and stir-fry for 10 seconds just to warm. (You don't want the bean sprouts to lose their crunch.) Remove from heat.
9. Add the scallions and cilantro.



  1. yum, pad thai is pretty much always delicious to me. i don't have a wok though, would a regular large skillet do the trick?


  2. yes you can definitely modify this for a skillet. just make sure everything cooks evenly and you have enough room for everything since you don't have the advantage of the sides cooking as well.

    you could also modify this recipe to make it with chicken or tofu.
