  • 9 ounces Pad Thai noodles (rice noodles) 
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup sliced scallions 
  • ¼ cup minced cilantro

  1. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Remove from the heat. Add rice noodles; let stand for 5-8 minutes or until noodles are tender. Rinse and drain.
  2. In a wok or large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add eggs. Cook and stir until completely set; remove and keep warm.
  3. In the same wok or skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add Sea Best Swai; stir-fry for 5 minutes or until fish turns opaque. Remove and keep warm.
