Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 packet Bean Supreme Plain Firm Tofu
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun spice mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 free range eggs – lightly whisked
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup good quality mayonnaise
  • Siracha hot sauce to taste
  • Olive oil for frying
  • To serve: lemon wedges
Method
  1. Cut the block of tofu into 1 ½ cm wide fingers. Lay them out on a clean tea towel or some paper towels and blot really well.
  2. Mix the flour with the smoked paprika, Cajun spice and salt. Place this in a shallow bowl suitable for dipping. Place the egg and the breadcrumbs in their own bowls also.
  3. Roll each piece of tofu in the seasoned flour, dip in the egg and then coat well with breadcrumbs. Repeat until all the pieces are crumbed.
  4. Heat 1 1/2 cm of oil in a sauté pan over a medium heat.
  5. Cook the tofu fingers until golden on each side. Do this in batches of around 6 at a time – try not to crowd the pan.
  6. Mix together the mayonnaise and as much siracha as desired.
  7. Serve the hot tofu immediately with the mayo and some lemon wedges.
