A simple shrimp pad thai that requires just one skillet

Our version of this take-out classic is surprisingly easy to make and requires just one skillet.

While truly authentic pad thai, with its sweet, sour, and salty flavours, requires hard-to-find ingredients like preserved daikon, palm sugar, and dried shrimp, our simplified weeknight recipe uses accessible ingredients to create a simple flavour profile.


Perfectly roasted salmon requires hot oven, hot pan

The key to perfectly roasted salmon is to preheat a baking sheet in a very hot oven, then lay the fish on the hot pan and reduce the oven to a gentle 275 degrees to cook.

The initial blast of high heat firms the exterior of the salmon and helps to render some of the excess fat. The fish then gently cooks as the oven temperature slowly drops, keeping the meat moist and succulent.
