Ingredients

  • 1 lb medium-firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
Green Onion Ginger Sauce:
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
Spicy Soy Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid honey

Method

Cut tofu into 4 equal slices, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick. Place, cut side down, on triple-thickness paper towel to drain; let stand for 20 minutes. Pat dry.

Green Onion Ginger Sauce: Meanwhile, in 2-cup heatproof glass measure, combine green onions, ginger and salt. In small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat just until ripples form on surface; pour over onion mixture until sizzling. Stir to combine. Let cool for 5 minutes. Drain off 2 tbsp of the oil and reserve for another use. Set sauce aside.

Spicy Soy Sauce: In small bowl, combine soy sauce, water, vinegar, ginger, sriracha and honey. Set aside.

In 10-inch (25 cm) skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Coat tofu all over with cornstarch; fry, turning once, until golden and crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with sauces.
