Fusion Taste Team Challenge 2: Thailand

By | October 12, 2011

Last week’s country, as chosen by Worldfoods, was Thailand.  I’m a little late doing this one as we were off work last week and meals were a bit hit-and-miss but this was definitely worth the wait!

I chose to do a prawn Pad Thai, the national dish of Thailand.  It was very similar to the last time I cooked it, although the few changes I made definitely made it even better.

Ingredients

  • 200g raw prawns
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 bottle WORLDFOODS Pad Thai noodle sauce
  • 300g pack of ‘straight to wok’ pad Thai noodles
  • 20g of chopped chives
  • 100g bean sprouts
  • 2 tbsp oil

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wok then add the prawns and fry until they have turned pink.
  2. Add the eggs and stir until they have scrambled.
  3. Pour in the WORLDFOODS Pad Thai noodle sauce and bring to the boil.
  4. Add the noodles and toss until well mixed.
  5. Add the chopped chives and bean sprouts and stir for a few seconds.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

I think adding the egg in this time was a great idea, and I definitely think the proper Pad Thai noodles made a big difference to it.  The sauce has a great flavour, I just need my local Tesco to start stocking it.  It’s a great mid-week dinner as it took less than 10 minutes to make which is fantastic on a miserable Tuesday when you can’t be bothered to cook after work.

We were all really impressed with this dish, the only downside was that there wasn’t enough.  We do like rather large portions though, especially when the food on offer is as yummy as this!

Don’t forget to check out the Worldfoods Facebook page to see what others have been making.
