Drunken noodles, also known as Pad Kee Mao, is traditional Thai street fare.  Though the recipe doesn’t call for alcohol, it is aptly named, as it’s a go to dish for locals who’ve had a late night partying.  Since its roots stem from informal food stands, the ingredients do vary, however, what they all have in common are velvety rice noodles and a delicious garlic sauce that is sweet and spicy.

Thai Green Curry Shrimp Recipe

By Laura Ratliff and Ryan Smith | May 24, 2012



This recipe, inspired by authentic ingredients from a market in Thailand, features an intoxicating green curry paste,used in a hearty, spicy meal of green curry shrimp served over fragrant jasmine rice. There is no comparison between jarred green curry and the homemade version.


The shortcut is tempting, but the second your kitchen is filled with the aroma of green chilies, coriander, ginger and lime, the jarred stuff will be the furthest thing from your mind. Plus, curry paste keeps forever in the freezer and you can cut off chunks as you need it, whether it be for a full-fledged meal or just as a topper for some steamed rice. Almost all of the ingredients can be found at the Chelsea Market here in the city, but there is also for hard-to-find items.
