Shrimp Pad Thai Recipe is the Best Pad Thai
Pad Thai is a popular Thai stir-fried rice noodles dish with a sweet, savory Pad Thai sauce and topped with crushed peanuts and lime wedges. You can make Pad Thai at home with chicken, shrimp, or a combination of chicken and shrimp. I love shrimp Pad Thai the best.
Healthier Than Takeout
I had the best Pad Thai noodles in Bangkok many years ago. I was on a transit at the international airport. I ordered shrimp Pad Thai from a fast-food joint. Hot off the wok, my Pad Thai noodles were absolutely delicious, fresh, with the perfect balance of flavors. It was spicy, savory, sweet and sour. I was instantly hooked. My shrimp Pad Thai recipe tastes very close to the ones I had in Bangkok; it’s also healthier and better than your regular Thai takeout here in the US.
Pad Thai Ingredients:
- Pad Thai Noodles – dry Thai rice sticks can be found at Asian stores. Follow the instructions to prepare the noodles before cooking.
- Fish Sauce – the building block for Thai recipes. Get a high quality fish sauce such as Red Boat or Three Crabs brand at Asian stores.
- Tamarind – tamarind is sold as a block or concentrate at Asian stores.
- Fried Tofu – you can get fried tofu at Asian stores. They are pre-fried. If you can’t find it, you can skip this ingredient.
