Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Coarsely chop peanuts.
Stem and coarsely chop cilantro.
Pat shrimp dry, and season with ¼ tsp. salt. f you received 16 oz. shrimp, season with ½ tsp. salt.
Cook the Noodles
Add noodles to boiling water and stir often until just tender, 3-4 minutes.
Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water. Drain noodles in a colander, rinsing with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Return noodles to pot and set aside.
Cook the Shrimp
Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
If you received 16 oz. shrimp, use a large non-stick pan.
Add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes.
Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes.
Transfer shrimp to a plate.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Start the Pad Thai
Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add garlic, white portions of green onions, and matchstick carrots to hot pan. Stir until aromatic, 45-60 seconds.
Finish the Pad Thai
Add noodles, shrimp, sweet chili sauce, chili oil (to taste) and a pinch of salt to pan. Stir until combined and heated through.
If pad thai is too dry, add half the reserved pasta cooking water. Then add remaining pasta cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.
