When it comes to Asian cuisine, pad thai is probably my favorite dish. Maybe it’s because of the wide fettucine-like noodles. Maybe it’s because of the chopped peanuts. All I know is that it’s good, and I’ve never met a pad thai that I didn’t like.
So, when I found this recipe for Watermelon Pad Thai on the National Watermelon Promotion Board website, I knew that I had to make it for my next new year’s resolution update (in 2015, I’ve vowed to prepare more meals using watermelon).
Anyhow, my first-ever attempt at making homemade pad thai turned out pretty well (that’s a picture of it above). The watermelon added a hint of sweetness to the pad thai, which paired well with the saltiness of the soy sauce and sautéed shrimp. From start to finish, it took only about 30 minutes, which isn’t bad for meal this good!
