  • Heat oil in a wok over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine rice wine vinegar, ketchup, fish sauce, chile sauce, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Set aside.

  • Add shrimp to the wok. Cook and stir until pink, about 4 minutes. Add the ketchup mixture and stir. Move all ingredients to one side to clear a small space in the pan. Pour in eggs and cook without stirring until partially set, about 3 minutes.

  • Stir the drained noodles into the shrimp and egg mixture. Add 1/2 cup peanuts, 1/4 cup bean sprouts, and carrots. Cook and stir until noodles are heated through, about 2 minutes. Garnish with the remaining peanuts, bean sprouts, lime wedges, green onions, and cilantro.

Cook's Notes:

If using pre-cooked shrimp, don't overcook.

Extra chile sauce can also be added for those who like it really spicy!

Use the garnish ingredients as desired. Some people prefer all the listed ingredients, some people just prefer extra peanuts.

I made this tonight for hubby who is a lover of Pad Thai. He gave it a 9.5 out of 10! I did make a few changes only because I was missing ingredients. I did not have fish sauce, so I threw in a glop (heaping TBS) of hoisin sauce. I did not have sweet chili sauce but added 1 TBS of spicy chili sauce instead. I skipped the cayenne and chili pepper flakes only because I didn't want to make it too spicy. According to hubby, I could have added a little more spice, so maybe 2 TBS of spicy chili sauce or maybe add some flakes to taste. Aside from those couple of changes, I stuck to the recipe. Honestly, I was super happy with the results. Thank you for an easy yet delicious recipe! Read More

It was delicious and a big hit for my guests. Also a fun meal round a table of six -- passing the extra toppings adds a bit of personal creativity. Everyone had seconds so it was definitely a hit. It did take some time before had chopping and readying but all except the cooking was done before guests arrived so only a few moments in the kitchen to serve piping hot when ready to eat! Yes I would definitely make it again! Read More

This dish turned out wonderfully and I think you could use any meat other than prawns and it would taste great or no meat Read More
