Delicious & Light Shrimp Pad Thai

3

March 16, 2017 by Crescentine

I have always been a fan of seafood, shrimps in particular. I have also always been a fan of Thai cuisine so the other day, I decided to make shrimp pad thai! Mon amour loves this dish and what’s not to love? (Unless you’re allergic to seafood of course…)

I used a pack of dried rice stick noodles (medium 1/4 inch) which should be available at your local Asian cooking supplies store, if you live outside of Asia or just at the grocery, if you live in Asia. I highly recommend using rice noodles instead of substituting pasta for it as it really adds to the authenticity of the dish.

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Here are the ingredients that you need:

  • 500g of medium-sized shrimps, peeled
  • One pack of dried or fresh rice noodles (medium 1/4 inch)
  • 1 lemon or lime, cut in half
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 leek, sliced into rings
  • 250g of flat green beans
  • 200g of mung beansprouts
  • 30g of dry roast peanuts
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce (nuoc mam)
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • A bunch of coriander / cilantro
  • One chopped chili pepper or a pinch of chili pepper flakes

How to prepare the dish:

  1. If you are using dried rice stick noodles, you have to soak it in cool water for 1 hour before cooking and then boil it in water for 4 minutes, drain and set aside.
  2. If you’re using fresh noodles then just soak it in cool water for 5 minutes or until the noodles separate, drain and set aside.
  3. Mix the soy sauce, fish sauce, half the lemon or lime and the chili flakes.
  4. Put a pan on medium heat and add the oil, stir-fry the garlic, leek, bell pepper and the flat green beans for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the shrimp and stir-fry for another 2 minutes.
  6. Add the fresh  or cooked rice noodles into the pan, toss to combine.
  7. Stir in the sauce, mix and toss until the sauce is evenly combined with the rest of the ingredients.
  8. Remove from heat then add the mung bean sprouts, peanuts and coriander / cilantro, toss to combine. Garnish with rest of the lemon / lime slices. Serve.
