Crispy Fried Tofu Sandwich
Freezing and thawing extra-firm tofu and then wringing out its moisture makes the slabs more porous and receptive to the tangy pickle juice marinade in this craveworthy fried tofu sandwich. After a brief soak in pickle juice, the tofu is dredged in a spiced flour mixture, brushed with a hot sauce and mustard, and then dredged again and fried to yield the crispy, crunchy slabs for a satisfying vegetarian meal that gives fried fish sandwiches a run for their money.
Recipe Summary test
A standard 32-ounce jar of dill pickles, such as Mt. Olive Hamburger Dill Chips, should yield roughly 1 1/2 cups dill pickle juice.
