- 3 tablespoons tamarind paste (get it here)
- 3 tablespoons fish sauce (I use this brand)
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon oyster sauce (get it here)
- 3 tablespoons granular erythritol, more to taste (I use this brand)

for the pad thai
- (2) 8-ounce packages of fettuccine style shirataki noodles (this is the brand I use)

- Drain, rinse, and soak the shirataki noodles in fresh water for 20 minutes. Strain them and dry fry them a large skillet, over medium heat for 5 minutes.
