Shrimp Pad Thai

Pad Thai with Miso Soup

Quick Link:

Ingredients (& What we Changed)

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

dReJ Tip: We ended up only making this meal once this week a result of some unplanned family meet ups for dinner – so when we made this the first time, we split it in half, so technically we both had 1.5 servings. I would say that it felt like too many noodles and since we served it with Miso soup – i didn’t even up finishing my soup either.


  • 8  ounces  wide rice stick noodles (Banh Pho) (we used Rice Stick Noodles – not wide)
  • 1/4  cup  ketchup
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  fish sauce
  • 1/2  teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  vegetable oil, divided
  • 1  pound  medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2  large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1  cup  fresh bean sprouts
  • 3/4  cup  (1-inch) sliced green onions
  • 1  teaspoon  bottled minced garlic
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts

dReJ Say: This was another delicious Cooking Light recipe this week. Upon first bite RJ and I both nodded our heads in agreement: This is good!! I typically don’t like peanuts and usually avoid Pad Thai for that reason – but I just sprinkled a few on my meal and it was perfect. Another A+ meal.

Miso Soup: Look in your international aisle at the grocery store for a Miso soup packet, or you can go with a hot and sour, egg drop, etc – whatever your favorite is! Follow directions on packet!

Calories: Since we did 1.5 servings for our dinner portion – it rings up to about 514. Obviously if you put less peanuts, or cut back on the noodles that would even things out a bit!
