If you eschew seafood, yet crave that briny taste of the sea, have I got a “fix” for you!
After one failed attempt to impart that elusive oceanic flavor to a vegetable-based alternative–tofu “fillets” in this case–I put the full weight of my mental capacity to the task at hand.
The result was a truly novel method for infusing the complex flavor and aroma of the sea into humble tofu triangles. Hint: wrapping them in Nori sheets is one of my secrets.
I call my version a “cleaned up British classic” because, after one oily and messy round of beer battering and frying the “fillets,” I created a different method for an ahoy-there-mate breading that is baked, as are my “chips.” To me, the flavor AND the crunch of both are irresistible. I hope you agree!
