  • Honest Prep Time: 5-10 Minutes
  • Time Spent Marinating: 5 Hours
  • Assembly: 1 Minute
  • Level Of Difficulty: Extremely Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 Tb of oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 1 Tb of soy sauce
  • Chopped garlic (1 wedge)
  • 1 Pinch of sugar
  • Spring Onions
  • Tofu (quantity provided in meal swapper)

Instructions

  1. Drain and dry out the tofu. Just leave it out in the air for about 15 minutes. It’s like cooking fish, if you dry out the skin and then cook it, it’s a lot more crispy.
  2. Once dry, coat the tofu with some corn starch.
  3. Heat up a pan and grill both sides of the tofu until is looks crispy.
  4. Mix all the wet ingredients, the sugar and spring onion together. Then pour the mixture over the tofu and into the pan.
  5. Cover the lid until the sauce gets sticky. Remember to occasionally spoon some of that sauce over the tofu.
  6. Serve and eat.

Your Advisor

The only ingredient with enough calories worth tracking is the fish. Feel free to use more or less of the other ingredients.

I would recommend having fish 2-3 times per week.
