    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Made this for my BF yesterday and he rated it 6 stars. The ingredients and instructions came from the chef at The Market at Newport, a popular cafeteria near where I work that serves excellent food. I supplied the amounts. Do not make this with silken tofu as it will just fall apart. Buy the type of tofu that's packed in water instead. Good as a meat substitute, or snack, or serve it on top of a bed of greens with a bit of rice vinegar or dressing of your choice. It's also really good with balsamic vinegar. *NOTE* - Use a non-stick frying pan, and don't peek at it otherwise it won't get crispy.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whisk all ingredients except for tofu in a 9x9 inch square baking dish.
    2. 2
      Drain and slice tofu in half lengthwise to make two thinner slabs. Blot with a paper towel.
    3. 3
      Preheat non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Slide tofu slices onto skillet and grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, flipping carefully with a large spatula. Brown it nicely to give it color and texture.
    4. 4
      Slip tofu slices into marinade, and turn with spatula at least once. While the tofu is sitting in the marinade, cut each slab 3 times lengthwise and widthwise with a sharp knife to make 16 squares per slab. Toss carefully.
    5. 5
      Let marinate for up to 30 minutes and remove garlic and ginger slices before serving warm, at room temperature or chilled.

      OK, first of all make sure you read the directions (like I didn't) and KEEP THE TOFU IN ORIGINAL BLOCK while you fry it. I cut it into chunks beforehand and then of course had to sit their and turn them to get all the sides crispy b/c I'm anal like that. If I had just cut it afterwards, like it said to, I would've saved so much time. It tasted great...made a salad with romaine, shredded carrots, alfalfa sprouts, cold cooked three grain rice mix from Trader Joe's, a little sesame seed and furikake and the Asian Vinaigrette on this site (http://www.food.com/recipe/asian-vinaigrette-salad-dressing-114822) and added the tofu on top. OOOMMMGGG. Really, really good. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars was my husband STILL doesn't like it (but my 2 little picky kids DID!) and it seemed more work to fry it first than to just marinate it and then throw it in the oven. Next time I will try the latter and see if it still tastes as good. Oh, also, I didn't have green onions so I subbed chopped red onions.

      Thanks for this!!

      Sensational flavours. I made half a batch for lunch today and savoured every bite. I crushed the garlic and finely chopped the ginger, so didn't bother to discard either before wolfing it all down. Also used fresh lemongrass and the full amount of sesame oil because I adore it. The only hard part was leaving it alone to marinate for 30 minutes.
