I have a question about the recipe "Shrimp Pad Thai" from mtlabor. Can you substitute olive oil or grapeseed oil?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

Sure. Anytime someone calls for vegetable oil, you can use a cooking oil of your choice. I would use grapeseed oil because of its higher smoke point and mild to no flavor. A strongly flavored olive oil wouldn't really mesh with a thai flavor profile.
Grapeseed oil it is! I'm planning on making this tomorrow and can't wait. Thanks!
It looks really good. I saved it to my recipes. :0)
