Tofu dishes are very popular in our Chinese cuisine in the Far East. Last week we all had dinner at a Chinese cafe, among others there was this dish. Of course, the exact recipe is unknown to me, but knowing the basics of Chinese cuisine, I dare to offer it to you in this version.
Pour vegetable oil into a frying pan and fry the tofu until golden brown on both sides, transfer to a plate.
We take carrots and cucumber, cut into strips, and then into lozenges, this is the kind of slicing that is popular in Chinese cuisine.
In a frying pan with the remaining oil, where the tofu was fried, put the carrots, fry for a couple of minutes, then the cucumber, fry for one minute. In Chinese cuisine, vegetables remain half-cooked, crispy.
Add any seafood or sea cocktail to the vegetables. I have octopus, mussels, squid and shrimp.
Stir and fry for 2 minutes.
Add finely chopped garlic.
Prepare the dressing sauce.
Mix soy sauce, water, sugar and starch
Pour the sauce over the vegetables with seafood, stir, the sauce will thicken immediately, simmer, stirring, for 1 minute.
Add the fried tofu, stir, let it brew for a couple of minutes and soak in the aroma and taste of tofu.
When serving, sprinkle with green onion feathers. It can be served as a hot or cold appetizer, as well as as a main course.
Enjoy your meal!
