Fried Tofu

Fried Tofu

Those familiar with our packaged Fried Tofu already appreciate how a simple tofu texture can be transformed into something a bit more complex through deep frying. The nature of any packaged product of course cannot maintain the full crispness that occurs immediately out of the fryer. Thankfully, crisp Fried Tofu is easy to make.

Using Sun Xien Tofu ensures the best tasting results because of our soybean-rich process. A selection of firmness also provides a range of variations. First-timers may find Sun Xien’s Firm Tofu strikes a great balance of easy-handling in the fryer with a nice body and texture.

Fried Fresh Tofu

  • 14oz Sun Xien Firm Tofu
  • Corn or Vegetable Oil

Heat approxiately 1-2 inches of corn or vegetable oil in a heavy pot or fryer. The goal is to have enough oil to ensure the entire cut cube is submerged.

When oil reaches 350°F, carefully and slowly add Sun Xien Firm Tofu as a single, uncrowded layer. As the tofu cubes fry, shift or turn occasionally to keep them from sticking. Maintain the 350°F temperature throughout frying.

When tofu reaches a golden color as pictured in the dish, remove with a wire scoop and let the cubes drain on a wire mesh or paper towel.

From here, only the imagination will limit the types of coating or dipping sauces that can accompany crispy Fried Tofu.

Coating options:

  • Toasted Szechuan chiles
  • Pico de gallo
  • Grated Parmesan

Dipping sauce ideas:

  • Plum sauce
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Szechuan chili oil
  • Sweet sour sauce
  • Light Soy with minced jalapeño
  • Cilantro lime
  • Horseradish mayo
  • Peanut satay
  • Coconut curry
