Pad Thai

This healthy pad thai recipe has less than half the calories and sodium of the traditional Thai-restaurant favorite. Look for dried wide rice noodles, sometimes called “Pad Thai noodles” or “straight-cut,” in the Asian-food section at most supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Serve with sliced cucumbers with a rice vinegar and cilantro vinaigrette.

Very bland

The main ingredient missing is tamarind paste. Can't make a tasty pad Thai without it. Also adding cilantro and fresh Thai chiles adds more flavor. I doubled the amount of shrimp and added ground chicken as well. Soy sauce is not a substitute for fish sauce. Can substitute agave or honey for the brown sugar.

Here is my version

Easy Pad Thai

This is the first time I have made Pad Thai and was surprised how easy it was. Really liked the wide rice noodles. I didn't have fish sauce so I used soy sauce. Would like to try the fish sauce next time. I also used pea shoots because I couldn't find pea pods. I would also use more shrimp next time.

Easy to prepare, very tasty

I found this recipe very good and easy. I did slice my shrimp in half and marinated them in chili oil while preparing the rest of the ingredient. Mixed together the brown sugar with the wet ingredients and poured them on at the end. As well as added cilantro with lime juice before serving. Will make again!

Easy and awesome

I love this recipe! I make it even easier by using Ka-Me Thai Rice Stir-Fry Noodles. They're ready to serve noodles so you just have to mix them in - no cooking needed.
