Pad thai is a surprisingly easy dish to make. Once you've got the proper ingredients, you can whip it together in about 10 minutes. This is my simplest version.

What you will need
8 oz Rice stick noodles
1 tbsp tamarind paste
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp chili flakes.
2 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 lb bay Shrimp
How to cook
Put the noodles in a container. Pour boiling water over them to cover. Make sure you stir them around so they don't stick together. Let them soak for 5-10 minutes, just until tender, not soggy. Drain and set aside.
Combine tamarind, fish sauce, honey, chili flake and peanut butter. Bring it just to a simmer and stir it up.
Slice your chives. Cut the lime in quarters. Set aside.
Heat some peanut oil to a shimmer. Add egg, stirring until barely set.
Rinse and add shrimp. Cook through, about 1 minute or so.
Add noodles. Cook for a minute.
Add the sauce. Cook until sticky.
Toss in the chives. Serve garnished with lime.
