Crispy Fried Tofu coated with a Ginger Garlic sauce by @thezestylime 🔥 A delicious savory recipe for your next meal!
CRISPY FRIED TOFU:
freeze and then thaw firm/extra firm tofu (in the package/water) • squeeze the excess liquid from it • gently break into chunks • generously coat in cornstarch (aka corn flour) • then fry in a nonstick pan at medium high heat in a thin layer of oil (shallow frying) • turning the tofu once each side gets crispy and golden so that each nugget is fried to perfection)
GINGER GARLIC SAUCE:
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp tamari (use 2 tbsp if you prefer less salty)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
2-3 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1/4 cup water
cornstarch slurry (1 tbsp cornstarch mixed separately with 1 tbsp of water and then added to sauce)
Mix everything together in a bowl, but make the cornstarch slurry separately and then add to the sauce. you can heat the sauce up in a separate pan first and add the tofu to it, or add it right to the tofu once it’s fully fried and crispy. if adding the sauce to the tofu, turn the heat up to high and then add sauce, so it will start to boil and thicken immediately. if the pan isn’t hot enough the tofu coating will get soaked with the liquid and soften up too much. make sure the tofu is generously coated in the sauce and then remove from heat and serve. garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
