Instructions– In a medium bowl, mix the soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic powder and smoked paprika if using. Then add the tofu cubes and coat well.– Heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. Add the oil and spread it all over the pan.
Instructions– Once the oil is hot, lower the heat to medium and add the tofu in a single layer. Work in batches if your pan is not big enough.– Cook each side for 2-3 minutes or until desired crispiness is achieved.– Serve hot or cold.
Quick Tip!For the crispiest results, press the tofu for 30 minutes using a tofu press or by wrapping it in a kitchen towel and placing a heavy skillet and/or several large books on top. However, this step is completely optional.
