Prawn Pad Thai

I love having Chinese/Thai every now and then but sadly a lot of the meals that you can get are made with “normal” soy sauce which contains wheat so there are plenty of dishes that I used to enjoy that I can no longer have while out. Sad times. One dish that is high up on my favourites is Prawn Pad Thai so if I want to have it then I will have to cook it myself using gluten free soy sauce. Luckily it is a really easy recipe to make. If you are not familiar with the tasty goodness that is a Pad Thai it is a dish made with rice noodles, beansprouts, fish oil, soy sauce, sugar, lime juice, chilli, coriander and peanuts and egg. You can have it with chicken, quorn or my favourite, prawns.

This recipe is both gluten and dairy free and makes enough for two people. If you fancy having a starter with it you could also try my gluten free prawn toasts which are very nice even if I do say so myself.

What you need:

125g Rice Noodles

250g Raw Prawns

2 Tbsps Fish Oil

2 Tsps Gluten Free Soy Sauce

2 Tsps Palm Sugar (or you can use brown sugar)

Handful of Peanuts Chopped

1/2 Red Chilli Sliced and Deseeded

2 Eggs Beaten

2 Spring Onions Sliced

2 Garlic Cloves Chopped

1 Lime Quartered

Handful of Coriander Chopped (include the stalks)

2 Handfuls of Beansprouts

Coconut Oil to Fry


How To Make:

Cook your noodles as required and set to one side.

Melt the coconut oil in the wok over a medium to high heat.

Mix the fish oil, soy sauce and palm sugar together in a cup and set aside.

Chuck in the raw prawns, chilli and spring onions to the pan and cook until the prawns turn pink, add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Move all the ingredients to one side of the pan and then add the beaten egg to the other stirring constantly to get a scrambled egg effect.  Once the egg is completely cooked add in the chopped peanuts and coriander (keeping some back for garnish) as well as the beansprouts and the fish oil mix.  Stir fry for 2-3 mins.

Add the cooked noodles to the wok and give everything a good mix, then serve.

Garnish with your chopped coriander and peanuts that you kept back. Serve with the quarter lime and squeeze the juice over the dish before eating.

    Ooh thank you for this, I look forward to trying it! I follow a modified low-fodmap diet and found a recipe a while ago for low-fodmap sweet and sour chicken which is fab! I think that when you make dishes like this at home they taste much fresher but I do miss the convenience!

    This looks delicious! I like the fact you have noodles and peanuts for ingredients, that must be tasty. It’s nice this dish is both gluten and dairy free. Even though you can’t eat many dishes when you go out, at least you’re certain that everything you make is fresh, clean and made with love.

    Oh my goodness, that looks delicious! I’m going to save this for later as we’re having friends over for dinner next weekend. I’ve been struggling to decide what to cook but I don’t anymore, thank you 🙂

    That looks really inviting and tempting. I think you should start thinking about producing a cook book. Well done with the picture too, looks really professional.

    I’m always looking for some good and healthy recipes of salads and this one is not only healthy but looks delicious too. I wonder how many calories are in there though. Anyway, is a great recipe and I’m thinking to try it someday. I’m not allergic to gluten, however, I guess is a good idea to avoid it when possible.

    I don’t like prawns much but my husband loves to eat them occasionally and he loooooves Thai. I think I am going to have to try your recipe for him soon 🙂

    I’ve never tried pad thai before, but it looks so fresh and light! I also love prawns too so this could be my ideal summery dinner 😀

      It is really nice, easy to make too! The peanuts give it an extra crunch. Let me know if you do give it a try 😊
