Crispy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

  • Author: Chef Jet Tila
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3-4 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package Firm Tofu, pressed and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup panko (regular, rice or pork)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Jet Tila Umami Punch blend
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Crisp lettuce leaves, like red leaf or bib, trimmed into handheld size
  • Kimchi
  • Red pepper, sliced
  • Lime
  • Chili Sauce
  • Green onions

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl add the panko and spice blend and whisk to combine.  In another medium bowl add the eggs and whisk.  In a third bowl add the flour.
  2. Add the cubed tofu to the flour mixture and toss to coat.  Dip into the egg mixture and then into the panko, coating all sides.  Set on a parchment lined baking sheet until you have dredged all of the tofu.
  3. Heat a large walk or skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil.  Quickly fry the tofu until golden brown on all sides and remove to a paper towel lined baking sheet.
  4. Assemble the lettuce wraps by placing a few pieces of tofu, kimchi, red pepper, green onions, chili sauce and top with a squeeze of lime and serve immediately.
