Tilapia Pad Thai

I’ve had this voice in the back of my head saying, “If you lived in Thailand, you wouldn’t notice that you’re gluten-free.”  Apparently, that’s true:  unlike a lot of Pan-Asian food, Thai food uses rice almost exclusively.

Thing is, I have no idea how to cook Thai food, and a lot of the spices involved are expensive, hard to find, and I’m not sure I can spell them.  This is where pre-made sauces come in:  where you are cooking outside your usual spice library and you don’t have a lot of time, a cooking sauce that includes everything is a lot less expensive.  (This particular sauce had coconut milk, pineapple juice and galangal, which is a Southeast Asian ginger.  Without the pre-made part, this dish would have a cost that is stratospheric.)
