3 tbs palm sugar
1 tsp ground white pepper
4 tbs water
1 lime, cut into halves
Few sprigs of Asian chives
2 tbs roasted, salted peanuts
½ cup bean sprouts
3.5 oz rice noodles
3 tbs coconut oil
10 uncooked jumbo shrimp, shells and heads removed, tails intact
50g firm tofu, diced

1 bunch Asian chives (or green part of scallions), roughly chopped with a few left for garnish
1 cup bean sprouts
¼ cup roasted, salted peanuts, chopped
Juice from 1 lime
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl then set aside.
Place the rice noodles in a large bowl and cover with warm water. Soak until tender but still al dente.
Place a large wok over a high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the shrimp and quickly stir fry until pink and cooked through. Remove from the wok.
Add the remaining oil and add the noodles and pad Thai sauce, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Move the noodles to one side of the pan and add the eggs, stirring so they scramble, then mix through the noodles. Next, add the tofu, preserved radish or turnip, Asian chives, bean sprouts and peanuts. Pour in the lime juice. Stir until heated through
Taste and season with extra fish sauce and/or lime juice if required.
To serve, divide the noodles between two plates. Garnish with extra Asian chives, peanuts, bean sprouts and a lime wedge.
