Directions

  1. Soak the noodles in warm water until soft (15-30 minutes). Drain thoroughly and toss with half the oil.
  2. Heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat in a wok or large, deep non-stick skillet for a minute or so, until the first wisps of smoke appear.
  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, for another 30 seconds. Shrimp does not need to be fully cooked at this time.
  5. Add the eggs and let sit for 15 seconds or until they begin to set.
  6. Scramble the eggs with the shrimp and garlic, breaking up large clumps.
  7. Add the fish sauce and sugar. Cook, stirring, for 15 seconds.
  8. Add the noodles. Toss and cook until heated through. Add salt to taste.
  9. Add 1 cup of bean sprouts and toss until evenly distributed.
  10. Turn out the noodles onto a platter and garnish with remaining sprouts, peanuts, crushed red pepper flakes, and cilantro.
  11. Squeeze lemon or lime juice all over and serve.

This is my favourite pad thai recipe. I use the sauce and spice mixture to stir fry lots of vegies first. Sometimes I add strips of chicken or prawns. I often can't be bothered doing the scrambled eggs first, although it is wonderful hen I do.
