Shrimp Pad Thai

Recipe by Leslulu
READY IN: 30mins




  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or a large frying pan.
  • Add the garlic and ginger and saute until lightly golden.
  • Add the shrimp and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until pink, tossing from time to time. Remove and set aside in a bowl.
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in the same wok or pan and add the egg. Stir to scramble the egg into small pieces, remove and set aside with the shrimp.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the soy sauce, fish sauce, rice wine, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar. (I put all these ingredients together in a bowl before I begin cooking). Stir briefly, add the drained noodles and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the bean sprouts, chopped scallions and cilantro. Mix well and continue to cook until the noodles are heated through.
  • Add the shrimp and egg back into the wok and toss with lime zest and lime juice. Season, if necessary with a little more soy sauce or fish sauce.
  • Serve on white rice or we just eat them without the rice.
