Yowzah from the *Ya Ya Cookerhood* visiting *Countries of Asia*! Having never made this before, I perty much followed as written, but did skip the tamarind sauce (didn't have any)....we LOVED it anyway, and added more shrimpies and NO tofu! Made a believer out of me--move over Deborah (Kerr) and Yul (Brenner) of *The King and * I--will definitely be making again - KEEPER!
We loved this! This was my first attempt at making Pad Thai and I was very pleased with the results. I was a little worried about the amount of fish sauce, but it did not overpower at all. I did not use tofu and next time would up the shrimp to 1 lb to make up for that. The only other thing I changed was to use 1/2 the amount of shallot and next time I think I would use even less, but that's just personal preference. Thanks for a delicious and quick recipe! Made for ZWT6.
