Shrimp Pad Thai

Our last cooking club for this year was last night at Erin's house and we had such a good time! The theme was erotic ingredients, and we had some pretty crazy stuff there! Just kidding! The theme was exotic ingredients. The food was great! My exotic ingredient was fish sauce. It's been in my cupboard for a long time and I finally decided to use it. Fish sauce smells like feet.

I made Shrimp Pad Thai and it was pretty good. It comes from my Everyday Food cookbook, so it's like Thai Food for Dummies, but it was pretty decent. Another unusual ingredient for me in this dish was rice stick noodles. That was the first time I had ever used those as well. Bobby feels strongly that Asian food is best eaten in Asian restaurants and I'm going to have to agree that Thai, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines taste better when it's prepared by the pro's. It was fun to give it a shot though, since I can't get Thai food anywhere around here.

Shawn loves thai food--as he served a laotion/thai speaking mission in Cali. When we were first married he had this bottle of fish sauce in our fridge that I never used, mainly because I didn't know what to do with it. One night he opened the fridge too hard and it fell onto the tile floor and shattered into a million pieces. It definitely smells like feet---and it stays around awhile! This recipe looks good! Just don't break your bottle of fish sauce.

Oh man! Yeah, that would be gross! If anyone wants to borrow my fish sauce, let me know. I don't think you can find it town anywhere.
