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

2 limes

Chives

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 egg

1/2 lb bay Shrimp

How to cook

1

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.
