I doubled the recipe and added snow peas and shredded carrots. I liked this recipe but it lacked the tanginess usually associated with Pad Thai. I'd use it again. Super fresh and tasty. I added more Sriracha and lime, as I usually do with flavorings, to most printed recipies. All you need to do is make sure you're ready to go with the perfect wine. Thanks Laura, and thanks previous reviewers! I doubled the recipe but I probably shouldn't have doubled the chili garlic sauce. Having grown up in Thailand I may be a bit too picky but I really found this an unsatisfactory take on one of my favorite dishes. Made this twice, once with shrimp, then with chicken. While water comes to a boil, combine sugar and next 4 ingredients (through Sriracha) in a small bowl. So easy and delicious! Since I doubled the recipe I used 1 T. of sriracha and 1 T. of chili garlic sauce. https://www.thespruceeats.com/real-shrimp-pad-thai-recipe-3217099 I think I will switch the canola oil for peanut oil to add more flavor next time. I did make some changes as recommended by other reviewers. It had a little bit of a bite to it which was nice. I would cut the chili garlic sauce in half. Tastes like restaurant quality pad thai, though I made a few changes: 1) Used Rice Linguine noodles (Simply Thai); 2) Used a handful of cilantro in lieu of basil; 3) Used a whole 8-oz bag of the mung beans. I think 8 oz. I used a combination of Sriracha and chili garlic sauce and added a few sliced red peppers. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. 12 medium fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined, ½ cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped. My husband went back for more later that night. The only problem I had was with the noodles The noodles I bought were in a package in the asian food section and were hard to get a part so I recommend either go with linguine or keep it authentic and soak the noodles a little bit to loosen them a part. This was a great fast recipe. I also omitted the peanuts. Add the garlic and stir fry until aromatic. This is definitely one of the best thai recipes I've made. I dumped: ketchup fish sauce white wine vinegar and the lemon. They won't really soften much more once added in. Transfer to a serving plate, and scatter noodles with 1/4 cup bean sprouts, lemon slices, 1/2 cup chopped peanuts and cilantro. I took other reviewers' advice and added more veggies-snow peas and shaved carrots. We serve it with another quick and easy dish...a cucumber and bell pepper salad. My grocery store didn't have the wide flat pad thai noodles, so I used thin rice noodles instead. However it still was not enough! Very spicy, which we like. Oh by the way... double the sauce! Hubby thought it was a bit spicy but I thought it was perfect! As recommended by other reviews I doubled the sauce. Medium or large is best. Swapped snow peas for the bean sprouts because it's what I had on hand, and added 1/2 tsp sesame oil to the sauce, as a few reviewers recommended. Pour in the beaten egg, and cook without stirring until egg is partially set. Very Good recipe, it just needs more veggies. Next time I will use half the noodles double the sauce and half the bean sprouts and peanuts. Try to buy seasonal produce when you can and make sure your store cupboard is stacked. This recipe is a keeper. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. It was fresh, very tasty, fast and healthy. This recipe is delicious! Quick and easy! Didn't use the bean sprouts but diced, steamed carrots instead. Info. This dish was wonderful and will definitely be making it again. If you can't find the variety at your regular grocery store go to an Asian store they'll have it.) A great everyday recipe. This came out wonderful, even with the changes made - quick to make and the flavors were simple but great. I decreased the peanuts by 1/2 cup to cut calories(just used a sprinkling on top for garnish) and added 1 cup of julienned carrots to the garnish at the end. I just cooked the chicken in a separate pan chopped it and added it after cooking my eggs and before adding my sauce. Also, I took the advice of others and added snow peas - I do think this dish needs an influx of some veggies. I also couldn’t find chili garlic sauce, so I used just plain chili sauce and I think I would add a few more garlic cloves to compensate next time. I did add pea pods, carrots, and red pepper. Delicious and NOT GREASY,unlike take-out. Congrats! That makes the noodles too soft which once cooked will be too soggy.

Meh...not bad but not great either. Pad Thai is one of my husband's favorite dishes and he loved it. MyRecipes.com is part of the Allrecipes Food Group. Also used peanut oil, and added sweet onions to saute with the shrimp. I would add 1.5 of the other sauce ingredients. Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. The garlic sauce was just the right amount of heat for us. Finally, a "good as a restaurant," low cal, Pad Thai recipe. Again, it was probably my bad and not the recipe's fault, but it wasn't my favorite dish. Oh my gosh!! I made this for dinner tonight. Mix the fish sauce, sugar, chili sauce and lime juice in a separate bowl. I also piled on the bean sprouts and basil since, those don’t add many calories but a lot of texture and flavor. 541 calories; protein 20.2g 40% DV; carbohydrates 68.7g 22% DV; fat 23.2g 36% DV; cholesterol 120.4mg 40% DV; sodium 488mg 20% DV. Moroccan Shakshuka, Venezuelan Cheese-Stuffed Arepas and 13 more international brekkies worth getting out of bed for. Your noodles are ready to be cooked once they're bendable but still have a slight crunch in them. Add the tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onion pieces, shrimp, and garlic; stir-fry 2 minutes or until shrimp is almost done. Really good! Made 1 1/2 times the sauce and that was perfect.
