Pad Thai Noodles with prawn is one of my favourite dishes from when I went travelling in Thailand, eating on the side of the road with a nice cold beer.
Fond memories for me, if you haven't been I highly recommend you go! However, until you get a chance to sample the amazing street food Pad Thai, have a go at my quick easy version at home. It is still delicious just a shame I can't bottle up the ambience of Thailand streets. Full of flavour, easy to make and gives you the taste of Thailand in your own home.
Cheat Ingredients for Pad Thai Noodles?
A few cheat products used to help speed up this already speedy pad thai recipe, all available from UK supermarkets!
- Gia Garlic Puree - Garlic ready crushed to put into your recipe, 1tsp is equal to 2 garlic cloves. No more stinky fingers, we use it in most recipes that call for crushed garlic!
- Gia Chilli Puree- Chilli peppers ready crushed to add a quick kick to any dish. 1tsp is equal to small chilli pepper. No need to chop your own anymore, have you ever rubbed your eyes after chopping Chillies?? It stings, doesn't it! Well, fear no more with this product!
That is one product used to help make this pad thai noodles quicker we also used.
