LilyBird's picture
As in cooking pad Thai the choice of meat is dependent on you, those who love sea food can enjoy it with shrimps.
  Rice noodles 7 Ounce
  Vegetable oil 3 Teaspoon
  Onions 2 , diced
  Minced garlic 2 Teaspoon
  Shrimps 12 Medium, peeled and deveined
  Tomato ketchup 2 Tablespoon
  Fish sauce 2 Tablespoon
  White sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
  White wine vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Eggs 2 , beaten slightly
  Bean sprouts 1⁄2 Pound
  Peanuts 1 Cup (16 tbs), chopped
  Lemon 2 , sliced
  Chopped peanuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Coriander 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), roughly chopped

In a bowl or saucepan, put the noodles in water for 10 minutes (boil if you want it chewier); drain them. Put noodles in hot water, and soak them in hot water for 20 minutes; drain them. Rinse with cold water; drain them to make it look fresh and not sticky then set aside.

Heat the oil after pouring it in a wok or large heavy frying pan over medium heat. Fry onion and garlic until onion is soft and translucent and aromatic, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp, and cook until pink. Pour some tomato ketchup, fish sauce, sugar, lemon juice and vinegar. You can also use some thai green curry to add additional flavor. Pour in the beaten egg, and cook without stirring until egg is partially set. Add drained and stir-fried noodles, bean sprouts, and peanuts. Mix while cooking until noodles are tender. Dish it out in square platter and present it with un-chopped cilantro.

If you will use fresh shrimps they will give better taste and enjoy your shrimp pad Thai.
