INGREDIENTS

  • 1 block medium firm tofu
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1½ tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • cornstarch for dusting (about 2 tbsp)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Drain tofu and wrap in paper towel or tea towel to remove excess water. Repeat 3 to 4 times until the tofu is drier. Slice tofu into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Whisk garlic, sriracha, soy sauce, honey and rice vinegar in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Dust tofu with cornstarch until all sides are coated.
  4. Use a medium large pan and turn the heat to high. Add oil and when the oil is hot, almost smoking, add tofu cubes.  Be careful of oil spits!
  5. Fry on each side for 2-3 minutes without touching or tossing too much, until golden brown.
  6. Add sauce and gently coat tofu cubes. Cook for 3 minutes.
  7. Turn the heat off and add sesame oil and sesame seeds.
  8. Stir once more to evenly coat tofu cubes and serve topped with scallions.
