This is simply fabulous! What a cacophany of flavors! I cut the tofu the way recommended, and got about about 22 pieces. I froze it after draining for 2 hours. The only changes I made to the recipe was I omitted the cayenne because I used a fine Indian chili powder that's very hot, sprinkled in just a little kosher salt because I'm trying to cut salt intake, coconut milk instead of soymilk, and orange zest because I had dried orange peel that I hydrated, and mixed with the coconut milk. I couldn't really taste the orange or coconut though because the chili and Old Bay are pretty powerful, used Old Bay Seasoning #2 for it. The key here is to fry it for long enough (but not too long or else it'll burn) because I had a few pieces I didn't fry long enough, those turned out limp, the key is to do about 4-5 minutes on each side so the breading puffs up nicely (that's the cornstarch doing its job!) and makes for a nice thick crunch. I thought they were quite spicy, would dip well with a more neutral flavor-- I liked them with applesauce! Would definitely make again, and probably will soon since I have some leftover breading.

I followed the recipe exactly as you wrote it, and it was good. The coating was easy to work with, stuck well and fried up crisp. The flavor was not nearly as spicy as I was expecting, and they did combine well with a chipotle mayo. I added baby spinach leaves to my sandwiches.person found this review Helpful.

First, for the previous reviewer, I'm guessing that you didn't freeze the tofu first (important if you want firmness, do it with all your tofu 'cept silken) but i think you might not have used enough oil or cut the tofu right. anyhoo this was great i threw it on couscous and made a sauce for it, i'll be making sandwiches with leftovers tomorrow. i always wanted to get a good crunchiness on me fried tofu. i didn't have old bay so i used prudhommes seafood magic. reminded me of rainbow trout as a child. also only had vanilla soy milk but didn't notice it at all. would recommend re-whisking milk mix each time you dip and less fry time with subsequent batches. Eating it plain is good but better wit' a dippin sauce. Thanks for sharing :)person found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...

I was so excited to try this recipe, as I am always looking for neat things to do with Tofu. I used firm Tofu in water and was sure to squeeze the extra out. I felt that the sesoning and coating were good, but the cmbination of the crispy outer and the, well, mushy interior left a lot to be desired. Also, the smell it left in my kitchen after frying it was also a bit gross. It did end up looking as beautiful as the picture however! I can't think of a way to modify this recipe so that I would find it to be a good one. Bummer.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...
