    Susan Dillard's Note:

    This is my favorite recipe for Phad Thai. It comes from "Quick & Easy Thai Cuisine" by Judy Lew and Chef Rut. I've tried many other recipes but none are as easy or as good as this one. I highly recommend the optional ingredients if you fix this. The 3 hours prep. time is soaking the rice noodles.

      I have to agree with fish sauce comment. Also adding some dried thai radish, ketchup and sugar enhance the flavor greatly.

      I thought that 4tbs of fish sauce was a bit strong. 3tbs might have been right on the money. Using peanut oil also adds to the flavor. I found the optional water in the recipe was a must to avoid sticking. For some true Thai flare, add some Thai hot sauce or crushed red pepper.

      I agree, this does definitely seem to be the easiest. What I'd like to point out though, which was mentioned in the optional garnishes part, but not actually employed, was the lemon wedge. Squeeze the lemon juice all over the meal and just taste the explosion of flavor! There is no doubt in my mind why this is such a popular dish!
