One Pot Pad Thai…

I have been watching different versions of One Pot Pad Thai float around on line for the last month.

Now listen, I am not a person who usually tries something new. But, I will do anything for Pad Thai. Sheesh, I don’t think I love my husband as much as I love Pad Thai.

Look, I made this!

I’m not lying. It has to be by far the best thing I have ever made my family in my entire life.  I even noticed my husband looking at me with dreamy eyes from across the table…

Now, let me take you back a moment.

After I found an idea of a recipe, I then headed to Real Canadian Superstore which is part of Loblaws.  Recently I was educated about sustainable seafood. I had no idea that choosing sustainable seafood helps protect our marine environment and helps so that we will be able to enjoy seafood for years.

I don’t know about you. But, I don’t want to live in a world without shrimp.

For reals.

I also had no idea that it was so easy to find sustainable seafood in the store. And really Canada is surrounded by oceans, like 40% of our country has a coast. So, I started looking for the MSC eco label logo. It looks like this….

Thankfully things were labelled really well in the store so it was easy to find the shrimp I needed for my One Pot Pad Thai.


One Pot Pad Thai

One Box linguine

6 cups chicken broth

4 thinly sliced cloves of garlic

1 red bell pepper sliced about the size of your pinky finger

1 carrot sliced

2 cups of sugar snap peas

2 green onions chopped

2 inches of ginger sliced about the size of your pinky finger

1 tablespoon of fish sauce

4 tablespoons of peanut butter

1 tsp of red pepper flakes

1 cup peanuts

12 oz bag of cooked peeled shrimp

Put all these ingredients into large pot.

Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cover for 15 minutes.

Keep checking every few minutes and stir.

Once the pasta is cooked and liquid has evaporated a tad and thickened; then you are ready to serve.

Garnish with chopped peanuts and lime.





The worlds oceans are at risk, buying seafood products with the MSC ecolabel makes a big impact in ocean health. If you are interested in more recipes with sustainable seafood you can get them from the website.

Please note that I did receive some perks to make this recipe and share it with you.  But it was an honour to work along side Marine Stewardship Council, Loblaws and World Wildlife Fund.  Sometimes its the little things we do that can make a big difference.

  1. I love pad thai and I’ve never made anything that tasted remotely like what we get from the take out joint. I’m going to try this. Pinning it for later!

  2. One pot, woot! I can totally get behind that. 😀 I don’t think I’ve tried making pad thai before, but you’ve made it look so simple! I’ll have to try this next week, thanks for the recipe! <3

    We're very conscious of buying from sustainable seafood sources. It can be super difficult though when some companies put similar logos on their cans/bags and make you believe you've chosen the right product. :/ Have to keep remembering to look specifically for the MSC badge.

  3. This looks UH MAZING. HUGE pad Thai fans over here and I have yet to find one to my liking in the new city we live in. I really need to just make my own. It looks super yummy. Thank you for the recipe!

  4. I made pad thai one time and it was so delicious. Yours looks better though and what’s not to like about one pot meals?? I really should read more about sustainable seafood. I am a massive fan of seafood and eat it whenever I travel but I never give that much thought about how sustainable it is or isn’t when I am dining out. This is a good reminder. Also I am so making this soon just for me. I heart seafood so so much. DH is deathly allergic to seafood so in fact I would not get the eyes for making this. LOL. I would get the hey seriously are you trying to do away with me eyes instead.

  5. I didn’t think I loved Thai food until I gave it a second try. As a 17 year old I was’t impressed when my foster parents took me to a Thai resturant. As an adult, I absolutely loved it and had it again recently. Would love to be able to make something like this at home. I’m visiting from the Monday Funday linky party. Hope you are having a great weekend.
