Pan-Fried Tofu with Soy Sauce and Sesame Dressing

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 10 servings

This quick-and-easy appetizer is infused with Asian flavors.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
2 pounds extra-firm tofu (not silken), drained and cut into 20 (1/4-inch thick) slices
4 green onions, thinly sliced diagonally
1 (2-inch) piece ginger (about 2 ounces), peeled and minced
1 red Thai chiles, sliced in half lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 teaspoons dark sesame oil
2 tablespoons sake (rice wine)

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and fry until golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Flip and fry the other side, about 6 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-line plate.
  2. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a small saucepan and stir-fry green onions, ginger and chiles until wilted, about 1 minute. Combine soy sauce, sesame oil and sake in a bowl, and stir in the stir-fried herbs.
  3. Serve tofu, overlapping the rectangular slices, topped with the sauce.
