Geoff's Smoked Fish Pad Thai
Geoff's Smoked Fish Pad Thai
My own recipe, made it (again) today. It went down well
Prep time, 10 mins
Cook time, 10 mins
One large tin stir fry vegetables (200g) (or make up your own mix from fresh veggies - bean sprouts, water chestnuts, chilli, onion etc). Today I used crunch fresh water chestnuts, 1/2 a red onion and a pointed red pepper.
6oz/200g smoked fish (I used smoked salmon trimmings) cut into stamp sized squares
400g (2 x 1 person sachet) of ready to wok pad thai rice noodles (or prepare some from dried if you cant get fresh)
2 eggs beaten into a small dish and ready to use
50 g (about 2 tbsp) of chopped peanuts or cashews
2 tbsp of fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves (exclude for feeding Rajah and other cilantro haters)
2tbsp chilli oil (preferable) or cooking oil (eg olive oil) if you dont have it
a finishing sauce made of 2 tbsp fish sauce, 4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce, 1 tbsp suger and juice of 1/2 lime all mixed up.
Heat the oil in a large wok/deep frying pan until smoking hot
add the stir fry veggies and the nuts and stir fry for about 3 mins (add some soy sauce if you like a darker stronger flavour to them)
add chopped smoked fish and fry for 2 more minutes
add fresh pad thai noodles and fry for 1 minute
add egg and stir fry quickly for 2 mins until egg has set and cooked in mix
add the finishing sauce and the fresh coriander and stir fry for 1 final minute (max.. dont dry this out).
Serves 2. Each person has one piece of the other half of the lime for squeezing on fresh - may want to also offer chilli sauce or soy sauce to add for extra spiciness.
The smoked fish comes through really well (fresh raw king prawn (large shrimp) would also work well).

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

You modified it by taking the herbs and (hot) spices out, the holy trinity that is the basis of cajun cookery too. I'd miss the garlic and the cayenne...
Still, I'm sure it'd be good - heavy mod!

I've posted my recipes for salsa, tacos, and cock-a-leekie soup before. I'm too lazy to go find them tonight, though.
