DIRECTIONS

  • For the dressing:
  • Stir together the liquids with the sugar. Lightly crush & add the chilis & shallots to the liquid. Will taste hugely overwhelming - no worries. It is balanced by the tofu.
  • For the salad:
  • Heat the oil over a medium-high flame in a large skillet. Author suggests cast iron - I use French stainless. Dry the tofu. Brown the tofu in the skillet - about 5 minutes a side. Flip and brown on the other side. Remove to drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Slice the tofu (when cool enough to handle) thinly, about 1/8" or so.
  • Toss the tofu and all remaining ingredients with the dressing. Alternatively drizzle with dressing or serve the dressing on the side in little bowls to dip a bite at a time (my fav).
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve.
