5-Minute Shrimp and Garlic Sauce Goong Pad Gratiam

Shrimp and Garlic Sauce – กุ้งผัดซอสกระเทียม

Goong Pad Graitam is one of the easiest recipes that requires little preparation but it yields an extraordinary taste! This is definitely one of my family’s favorite meals ever. Sometimes, we eat just this and a drink. It is the recipe I use to introduce my daughter to garlic and after that, she really loves the garlic!

I am constantly making this one around the house because it’s so fast to make and the taste of the shrimp and garlic is unbeatable over Thai Jasmine rice! We have this one at least 5 times per month, and maybe even more in some months.

If you want to order this one in a restaurant, you should pronounce it like – Goong Pad Gra-tee-uhm. Or, just copy the Thai language we have above and show it to the waitress. Goong means shrimp. You probably already know that one. Pad means fried (like stir-fried, in this case). Gratiam means garlic.
