Since I enjoyed the Greek Dressing Mix I decided to try the Pad Thai. Ofcourse, the night I decide to make it, I have no chicken or shrimp or peppers. Instead I substituted calamari and spiralled up some garden fresh zucchini. Guess what?!
It was delicious!
It was super simple too!!
Make up the Epicure Pad Thai seasoning pack and set aside.
I spiralled up some fresh zucchini and set aside.
I quickly sautéed up some frozen calamari while boiling up some broad rice noodles. I like to slightly undercook the rice noodles as I then throw them into my frying pan.
As the rice noodles are draining, heat up the frying pan with a tablespoon of sesame seed oil. Then drop in the zucchini noodles. Sauté them up a bit before adding the rice noodles.
Then pour in sauce.
Add 2 beaten eggs and stir-fry.
Just before serving add the juice of 1 lime. Top with the calamari and chopped nuts (if desired)
This is a family hit! Even without all the traditional ingredients!!
** if you really want to bring this recipe to the next level and have on hand- cook up some calamari & shrimp with fresh chopped garlic & butter. Then add to the pad Thai before serving! Such another flavour fusion
