  1. Cut tofu into 12 cubes. Place cornstarch on a plate or in a shallow bowl and dredge tofu in it, coating thoroughly.
  2. Heat enough oil so that tofu will be half-way submerged. Fry tofu in hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until crispy. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Sprinkle green onions over tofu and drizzle with hoisin sauce. Serve immediately.

It's pretty good, but as a Japanese I just could not pour hoisin sauce over the tofu. I guess it's quick and easy that way, but it's so much better with soy sauce, mirin (rice wine), and kelp br...

YUMMY!! This is exactly like the tofu I get at my favorite asian restaurants! I used it as a replacement for chicken in a stir fry recipe with the following orange ginger glaze: 1 tables...

This is just SO good. I cube the tofu then put them between layers of paper towels for a few minutes. This gets the excess water out so there's no splattering when the tofu hits the oil.

Very authentic in taste and texture (lived in Japan for 8 yrs). Instead of hoisin sauce, I combined chicken broth and soy sauce (about a 2:1 ratio) and fresh lemon juice - (adjust to taste).

Very tasty. I darned near killed myself with all of the splattering oil, though. I am going to have to invest in a splatter screen if I make this again!

I've been looking for a good tofu recipe for 3 years and have tried many. This is the best! I even had Hoisin sauce in my cupboard but had never found a use for it. MSG affects me negatively,...

Good, simple recipe. I dredged the tofu in flour instead of the cornstarch (since it was what I had), and heated the hoisin sauce in a skillet and tossed with the fried tofu. Really good by it...
