Good recipe! Pad Thai is made slightly different by every chef or cook depending on what you have on hand various veggies, seafood, even meat plus Thai Basil, cilantro and as much chile as you want. You should add the nam pla fish sauce at the end as the fish sauce flavour cooks out. I am impressed. Mary-Anne Thai Food Editor http://www.bellaonline.com/site/ThaiFood
