Seared Asian Tofu

Main Courses

Based on recipe from http://tonytantillo.com.

4 Servings Preparation Time: 1 Hour

  • 1 pound firm tofu
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine (mirin)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Thai chili-garlic paste

1. Place the tofu on a paper towel on a plate. Set another plate over the tofu and top with heavy object to remove excess moisture, for about 30 minutes. Slice the tofu lengthwise in 4 equal slices. Place in a shallow Pyrex dish.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the remaining ingredients. Pour over the tofu. Marinate the tofu for 15 minutes, turning several times to coat.

3. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, sear the tofu slices for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until browned.
