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.
