  • 3 tbs tamarind paste (or lime juice if can't find)
  • 3 tbs fish sauce
  • 3 tbs palm sugar (or brown sugar if can't find)
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • 4 tbs water


  • 3.5 oz rice noodles
  • 3 tbs coconut oil
  • 10 uncooked jumbo shrimp, shells and heads removed, tails intact.
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g firm tofu, diced
  • 2 tbs preserved radish or turnip, chopped (omit if can't find)
  • 1 bunch Asian chives (or green part of scallions), roughly chopped with a few left for garnish.
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • ¼ cup roasted, salted peanuts, chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime


  • 1 lime, cut into halves
  • Few sprigs of Asian chives (or green part of scallions if can't find)
  • 2 tbs roasted, salted peanuts
  • ½ cup bean sprouts



  • Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl then set aside.


  • Place the rice noodles in a large bowl and cover with warm water. Soak until tender but still al dente.
  • Place a large wok over a high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the shrimp and quickly stir fry until pink and cooked through. Remove from the wok.
  • Add the remaining oil and add the noodles and pad Thai sauce, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Move the noodles to one side of the pan and add the eggs, stirring so they scramble, then mix through the noodles. Next, add the tofu, preserved radish or turnip, Asian chives, bean sprouts and peanuts. Pour in the lime juice. Stir until heated through.
  • Taste and season with extra fish sauce and/or lime juice if required.

To Serve
