Jill's Pad Thai

Jill is responsible for the Pad Thai you may notice popping up a lot on my blog, she also introduced me to chicken Jambalaya and I can't wait to go back to Belfast in November so she can make me some more yummy meals we can have a magical wonderful time together.

Pad Thai is really easy to make, very filling, low calories and full of goodness!

It's so good I didn't want to hang around to adjust the white balance on my camera so please excuse the pale photo!

Serves 1:

  • 100g King Prawns

  • 80g Noodles

  • 20g/2 Spring Onions

  • 50g Carrots Sliced Julienne style

  • 15g Cashew or Monkey Nuts

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 Tbsp Fish Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice

  • 1 Tsp Dark Brown Muscovado Sugar

  • ½ Tsp Cayenne Pepper

  • 1 Tsp Groundnut Oil

Make sauce from lime juice, sugar, cayenne & fish sauce. Mix well and set aside.

Chop veg

Prepare noodles by soaking in boiling water while preparing the veg

I should probably tell you to peel prawns and stuff, but I just soak mine in some cold water to defrost! :D

Heat oil and stirfry carrots & spring onions until carrots are soft. Then add prawns (I use ready to eat or cooked and frozen so you may want to put raw ones in a bit sooner)

Add in noodles and stirfry until heated through.

Add the egg and scramble it in.

Add sauce and peanuts and stirfry for a further 2 minutes or until whole mixture is cooked through.

  1. Yummy thanks for posting the recipe! Have a fab weekend x x

  2. Forget Belfast, you need to visit The Queen of Tarts in Dublin - I am seriously thinking of buying a franchise. Everything tastes so good!
