Thai Noodle Recipe with Shrimp and Broccoli

This Thai noodle recipe with shrimp comes from my friend Radissa. It is called Pad See Ew and is very tasty and super easy to make.

You are going to need thick rice stick noodle for this. However, if you cannot find it go ahead and use what ever rice noodle you can find. You are also going to need oyster sauce, fish sauce and dark mushroom soy sauce. The dark mushroom soy sauce is the See Ew part of this recipe — that is what it means. And, if you did not know already, pad means stir-fry.

Fish sauce has a very pungent odor but it does not taste like is smells so don’t worry about it. You will use only 2 tsp. but it will give it that authentic Thai flavor. This sauce will last you for a long time and is not expensive.

This is truly a very satisfying and flavorful meal that you can make on any week night. Dinner will be on the table within minutes.

Here are the ingredients you need for this recipe. Although they come from Amazon they will not cost you any more if you buy them from here. I get a small commission that allows me to maintain the website.

This is what you need to do for this delicious Thai noodle recipe with shrimp:


Serves six
13 oz. thick rice noodles
3 TBS vegetable oil
2 heaping TBs of minced garlic
1 pound shelled and deveined shrimp – butterflied (cut a small slit on the back)
½ TBS of oyster sauce
2 tsp. fish sauce
1 TBS mushroom dark soy sauce
2 tsp. sugar
3 eggs
½ a white onion sliced into thick slices
1 head of broccoli separated into medium sized florets – about 3 cups (peel and chop the stalk as well)
Black pepper

Soak the noodles for about 30 minutes on room temperature water – until they are flexible. Drain them and set them aside.

Heat 2 TBS of oil in a skillet. When it is hot add the garlic. Cook it, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes – until you can smell it. Add the shrimp and some black pepper. Cook the shrimp for about 4 minutes – until it changes color – flipping occasionally. Do not overcook it as it will turn rubbery. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

Add the noodles to the pan and stir. Add the oyster sauce, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Mix well and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until the noodles are soft. Pile the noodles up on one side of your skillet. Add the eggs to the skillet side with no noodles and allow them to set for about a minute. Start scrambling them and incorporate them into the noodles – do not stir them in, rather grab 2 spatulas and fold the noodles a few times until everything is mixed. You can watch the video to see exactly what I am talking about.

Add the onions and broccoli and the remaining oil. Mix well and allow the broccoli to cook for about 4 minutes until it is dark green, cooked but still crisp. Return the shrimp to the pan and stir. Heat through and serve. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! I’ve never cooked with the wide noodles before, but I have pad thai noodles at home and may try this tonight.
