I can't be sure I've ever eaten Pad Thai before; but I certainly haven't had a raw version till I made this one. The Satay sauce is reminiscent of a satay sauce I used to make in a restaurant long ago; and i have recreated the recipe to some degree.
Coconut cream (or coconut water if the cream is too rich), a splash of soy sauce, coconut sugar to taste, shallot, fresh lemongrass - bruised, fresh ginger, garlic, ground turmeric, fresh red chilli, lime juice, galangal, and a yummy organic peanut butter. Blitz together in high speed blend (or food processor if you want to keep it lumpy)! It's quite nice to have crunchy bits in the satay sauce!!
The Pad Thai Recipe
I have grated courgette and carrot on a mandolin (no; not the musical instrument); sliced some red pepper, red cabbage, spinach and red onion "julienne-style", then added fresh mint, roasted peanuts and fresh coriander.
One of my all-time favourite dishes; soooo delicious!
