  • Dried shrimp, you wash with water and then soak in cold water until soft.
  • Fresh shrimp you remove the head, peel, remove the back, keep only the part
  • Chives and bean sprouts, remove the shriveled part, then wash, soak with a little salt and then take out the basket to drain.

Step 3: Cook Pad Thai

  • Use a non-stick pan to avoid the noodle sticking to the pot! Put the pan on the stove, when the pan is hot, add the minced onion and garlic and fry until fragrant, then add the shrimp and stir-fry. Shrimp is very quick to cook, so you stir for a while, then add fried tofu and stir-fry. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes, turn off the heat and remove to a plate,
  • Still with the same pan, you add cooking oil and then stir-fry chives and bean sprouts. About 2-3 minutes, you add a little seasoning, stir well and then add noodles, shrimp and tofu.
