Soak the dry noodles in lukewarm water while preparing the other ingredients, for 5-10 minutes. Do not over soak as they will get mushy.
Heat it up a wok or large pot on high heat and pour in oil. Fry the peanuts until toasted and remove them from the wok. Add shallots and garlic, stir them until they start to brown. The noodles should be flexible but not expanded at this point. Drain the noodles and add to the wok. Stir quickly to keep things from sticking.
Add tamarind, sugar, fish sauce, and chili pepper. Stir. The heat should remain high. Make room for the egg by pushing all noodles to the side. Crack the egg onto wok/pot and scramble it until it is almost all cooked. Fold the egg into the noodles. Add shrimp and stir. Add bean sprouts and green onions. Stir a few more times. The noodles should be soft and very tangled.
Pour onto the serving plate and sprinkle with peanuts. Serve hot with wedge of lime on the side and green onions and raw bean sprouts on top.
The second time I made this I had no fish sauce, so I used oyster sauce with a bit of rice wine vinegar in it - it was perfect! You can also find powdered tamarind in almost any major grocery store in the international section. It's usually less than a buck!

Shirataki noodles are the zero calorie, zero carb, zero gluten "miracle noodle" from Japan that is made from konjac root. We used to only be able to find these noodles in Asian grocery stores, but now they are available at most stores and all over the internet.
Easy, flavourful and inexpensive to make. I was craving pad thai and combined a few recipes I found into one, and added my own twist to it as well. I used to use another recipe but found it a bit dry and tasteless so I created this one.
A meal you can whip up easily and enjoy with a balance of protein and vegetables. You can hold the meat, add more or less vegetables depending on your preference and what you have on hand.

I'm looking for a recipe for Boston Pizza's Pad Thai, which my kids love. Boston Pizza is a Canadian chain. Here's a description of the dish from their website:
I also absolutely LOVE their Psd Thai but dont feel like paying 15 bucks everytime i want to eat it. So if anyone knows their recipe PLEASE share it with us.Thanx(
I was so hoping to find the recipe on the computer because I love the Pad Thai from Boston pizza. But after a lot of searching, I still haven't found it. I will check back here hoping that someone will fess up the recipe so we can all enjoy it.
I am also from Nova Scotia, and Pad thai was my fave meal at BP until they took it off the menu. I found a recipe that tastes the EXACT same. Just made it tonight for the first time and I saw this earlier when I was googling the recipe so I thought I would come back online and share! I couldn't believe it lol.
