Buffalo-inspired fried tofu

My friend Dave was telling me about a place in Worcester that serves Buffalo Tofu.  I thought the idea was pretty interesting so I decided to try it on my own.  However, when I went to prepare the sauce I found that I did not have any Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.  All I had in the fridge was a bottle of Sriracha.

Ingredients

  • Block of firm tofu
  • Flour for dredging
  • Sprinkle of chipotle powder
  • 1 egg, beaten with a little water for an egg wash
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Oil to fry

Heat the oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

Slice the tofu into 4 pieces (I used half the block of tofu I had in the fridge).

Sliced firm tofu, ready to go

Dredge the tofu in flour that you have seasoned with chipotle powder and some salt.

Coat the dredged tofu with the egg wash.

Dredging mixes

Coat the tofu with breadcrumbs.

Ready for the fry.

Lightly fry the tofu in the oil, about 3 minutes per side.

Allow to rest for 2 minutes.

Out of the frying pan.

Melt the butter and add Sriracha sauce to the butter (I used about 8 drops, but then added more on my sandwich).

Toss the tofu in the sauce.

Place tofu on a fresh roll.  Add lettuce, mayo, extra Sriracha sauce.

The finished product
