Pad Thai At Home

Takeout may be the easiest option at times, but nothing beats the satisfaction of enjoying a delicious, home-cooked meal that you’ve created yourself. Next time you have a craving for Asian cuisine, try this Shrimp Pad Thai with Jasmine Rice and be amazed at how little effort it takes to create a delicious, restaurant-style meal right in your own kitchen. Though traditionally made with rice noodles, we’ve opted for jasmine rice to make this dish aromatic, filling and quick-cooking.

This recipe has been adapted for simple and quick home-cooking, so the results will be equally tasty whether you use a wok or a large skillet, just make sure you’re ready for a bit of stir-frying! 

Steps to Success

To start this recipe, you’ll cook a bag of jasmine rice then set it to the side. Then, you’ll prepare a simple sauce by combining brown sugar, fish sauce, lime juice, chili sauce and soy sauce in a small bowl. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil and quickly scramble an egg over high heat, then set aside. Now comes that stir-frying we mentioned earlier. Heat oil in the wok or skillet and add the garlic and shrimp and stir-fry. Follow that by adding the rice, sauce, onion and cooked egg. Finish by giving everything a good toss to combine all of those tasty ingredients. We like this dish served in bowls and topped with bean sprouts, peanuts, cilantro and a lime wedge. We know you’ll love this recipe, and how easy it is to pull together!
