Spicy Thai Noodles
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 1 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp sriracha
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 6-8 Basil leaves (use Thai or Italian basil), cut chiffonade
- 3 tbsp oil (avocado, canola, or peanut)
- 2-3 cloves minced garlic
- 2 large eggs
- 1-2 serrano chilis, thinly sliced.
- 6 oz protein of choice (peeled and deveined shrimp or thinly sliced chicken breast)
- 1/2 medium white onion, sliced
- 4 cups rice noodles
- 1 cup basil leaves (Thai or Italian works)
- 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
- Make the sauce. Combine all the ingredients and set aside.
- Prepare the noodles per package instructions. The ideal noodle is a wide rice noodle, but pad Thai style noodles work too!
- In a wok or a large saute pan, heat the oil over high heat. When you see a wisp of white smoke, add the garlic and cook, stirring until light brown.
- Add the eggs and Serrano chilis and cook until the eggs are lightly scrambled and barely set. About 1 minute.
- Add the chicken or shrimp and the onion. Stir constantly until the protein is cooked.
- Add the cooked noodles, basil, tomatoes and sauce. Toss to combine for about 3 minutes. Don't be scared to scrape off anything that gets stuck to the bottom of the pan before they burn. Serve hot.
