Dipping Sauces for Deep-fried Tofu

Atsuage, or Deep-fried Tofu, is a very versatile tofu product.  Because it does not contain as much moisture as regular tofu, the texture is firmer.  It can be sliced and pan-fried, chopped and added to a stir-fry or crumbled to make a burger!

For a quick and easy appetizer, Deep-fried Tofu can be paired with almost any type of dressing or sauce.  Here are some samples of the endless possibilities:

Peanut Dipping Sauce


2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce

1 tablespoons chunky Peanut Butter

1 tablespoon mirin

1 teaspoon sesame oil


Stir together first three ingredients in microwavable dish and microwave for one minute.  Mix in sesame oil and serve on Atsuage. Ono!


Sumiso Dipping Sauce


½ cup miso

3 tablespoons sugar

¼ cup Japanese vinegar

fresh grated ginger


Mix all ingredients well. Chill.  Serve with Atsuage.
