Panko Tofu

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PinkCherryBlossom

I love this dish, Depending on how I'm feeling i either use egg or sweet chili sauce to coat the tofu prior to covering with the panko. My favourite sauces to serve with it are Wasabi Herbed Mayonnaise and Tonkatsu Sauce. Prep/cooking time does not include draining time!

It tasted JUST LIKE the fried tofu appetizer we get at our local sushi place. My girls are very picky eaters and they gobbled this right up. And it didn't cost us $8, either-Major bonus!! I would highly recommend this recipe for anyone trying to get kids to eat better - they won't have any idea that it has some nutrition in it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open the tofu slice into cubes or slabs depending on preference; wrap in kitchen towel.
  2. Try to get as much water out as you can by changing the towels when they are damp. The tofu needs to be as dry as possible for this recipe.
  3. Coat the tofu with egg or sweet chili sauce depending on which you are using and then roll in the panko gently patting the breadcrumbs on.
  4. Fry until crisp and golden brown.
  5. Drain on kitchen towel and serve with your choice of sauce.
