Pad thai

thursday | Jan 24, 2009 05:48 PM

I've only eaten thai food once or twice, but thoroughly enjoyed the pad thai. A well-meaning friend bought me a "Pad Thai Kit" from a thai grocer so that I could make it at home...only there's no real instructions. It comes with pad thai noodles, tofu, preserved radish, dried shrimp, pad thai sauce, and fish sauce. The pad thai sauce has a brief recipe of "boil noodles. Add shrimp, bean sprouts and hard bean curd. Add pad thai sauce." I'm assuming sprouts and curd refer to radish and tofu, but what about the fish sauce? Are there any proportions here I need to know about? Any help or advice, please--as I've never made thai food before, I don't know what to do with leftover sauces either.
