Shrimp Pad Thai
Chefs Ann Redding and Matt Danzer load their perfectly chewy noodles with layers and layers of flavor by using shrimp three ways (head-on fresh shrimp, fried dried shrimp and shrimp paste).

The soaked and drained noodles can be covered with a damp towel and refrigerated overnight. The tamarind sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
The tamarind concentrate, palm sugar, shrimp paste, chile powder, dried shrimp and preserved sweet radish (also sold as sweet-salty turnip) are available at specialty food stores and at templeofthai.com.
