I hadn’t planned to post this recipe, but i had so many people asking me about it, so i thought i would post the ingredients (no measurements) as i just threw everything together! You don’t really need measurements for this recipe either as you just mix the wet and dry ingredients in seperate bowls and then fry – and you add more if you need it!
Tofu “fish” is a great alternative to baked fish. Of course it doesn’t have the same texture or consistency, but it works and with some dill sauce or herb sauce and cooked potatoes it works perfectly!!
Note: Can be a good idea to marinate the tofu before hand if you want extra flavour.
1 block tofu (250g)
Bread crumbs (or panko)
2 x Aquafaba (i.e the mixture from canned chickpeas)
Flour & salt and pepper
Oil for frying
Begin with chopping the tofu into medium thick slices.
In one bowl pour the aquafaba. In a second bowl pour flour and add seasoning. In a third bowl pour bread crumbs or panko.
Then begin by first rolling the tofu slice in the flour, then into the aquafaba and lastly in the panko/bread crumbs and then into the frying pan to fry. Note, it can be good to have one hand for the dry ingredients and one hand for the wet ingredients.
Fry on medium heat until the bread crumbs are golden brown.
Make a sauce with ex mayonnaise&vegan creme fraiche or soya yoghurt. Mix with herbs, example dill and salt and pepper.
Squeeze some fresh lemon on top and serve with sauce and cooked potatoes!
