Richard.Blaine's picture
Thai Food is one of the most popular foods to go out and eat today! How many people do you know that LOVE Pad Thai? Well I know I LOVE it! This week I made another Pad Thai dish that is made with seafood instead of Pad Thai which is made with beef or chicken this week I made a Thai Food called Pad Cha! Pad Cha can be made with fish fillets, or seafood of any kind that you may have laying around. If you are used to eating regular Pad Thai made with meat then you might want to give this seafood version of Pad Thai a shot!
