Have you guy had mouth ulcer before, nobody will like this sore and painful ulcer, of course! But why did people get it, can anyone tell me and has anything can cure it or reduce it?  It also affect our appertite seriously!

One of a friend of mine, she  gets mouth ulcer all the time, such a poor lady! But she told me, when the time she had the ulcer, she always want to eat crisps or some spicy food. It is quite strange, isn’t she???

Ok then, so I think of making  up this dish for her to enjoy, 🙂

Wish it won’t be too spicy for her, or will it be making her ulcer get worse… :p

I served the spiced salt tofu with a piece of gem lettuce, how about yours? If you have any good idea, please let me know, thanks!

I made one more portion of the spiced salt tofu and decide to make another dish for tomorrow, find out in next post, pls.  🙂

Ooops, I just found out that I got one mistake, I forgot to sprinkle the cornstarch over the marinade tofu, can anyone find out that? hehe  Because I was in a rush, so forgot about it and straight to the oven, and my baking time just only 20 minutes, so those are not crispy enough, but the taste still so good, especially dipped into the sauce, fanastic, great flavour!

Method: 

  1. Rinse the tofu under the tap water and wrap over few pieces of kitchen towel to absorb the water, until dry.
  2. Mix the marinade ingredients together: sesame oil, olive oil, soy sauce, chilli oil with the flakes and sea salt into a bowl.
  3. Cut the dried tofu into cube size, the bigger the cube the longer time to bake. I like to cut it horizontally into two flat slices first, then cut into 9 small cubes in each slice, so I can get 18 small cubes in total.
  4. Coat each of the cubed tofu into the marinade sauce completely and leave it for about  half hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C/180°C (fan oven) or gas mark 6.
  6. Sprinkle the cornstarch all over the tofu and bake in the hot oven for about 25 to 30 minutes until the skin looks golden and crispy. Cool down on a wire rack.
  7. Prepare the dipping sauce: Mix the remaining ingredients together in a little dipping bowl. Test the taste for your own like.
  8. Serve hot or warm with the dipping sauce. Enjoy!   🙂

Note: 

  • This dish can be a starter or a main, but what do you think treat it like a snack or tapas with a glass of beer! 🙂
  • For some people can’t stand the hot chilli sauce, just skip it and exchange with 1/8 tsp ground white pepper will be good as well.
  • Remember to sprinkle the cornstarch over the marinaded tofu, don’t copy my mistake, I bet you won’t lol.
