  • 1/2 pound pad Thai rice noodles (banh pho)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha or chile-garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 pound rock shrimp
  • 1/4 pound bay scallops or large scallops, quartered
  • 1/4 pound cleaned squid, bodies cut into 1/4 inch rings, tentacles halved
  • 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups julienned carrots (from about 3/4 pound carrots)
  • 4 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup ground roasted peanuts

How to make this recipe

  1. Put the noodles in a large bowl and cover with very hot water. Let soak until just pliable, about 15 minutes (or according to package directions). Drain the noodles in a colander, shaking off excess water.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the fish sauce with the oyster sauce, lime juice, sugar, and Sriracha.

  3. In a large nonstick wok or skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil until shimmering. Add the shrimp, scallops and squid and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the seafood to a plate. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the shallots, garlic and carrots and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the noodles and scallions and stir-fry until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  4. Scrape the noodles to one side of the pan and add the eggs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, about 1 minute. Toss everything together. Add the sauce and the 1/4 cup cilantro and stir-fry until the noodles are evenly coated and the sauce has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the seafood and cook until just heated through. Transfer the pad Thai to a platter. Garnish with more cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

Review Body: Real good recipe. Those in need of a serious flavour hit might like to make more sauce - just don't over power that seafood.
