Piri Piri Prawns with Tofu

I used freeze-dried tofu in this recipe, it's very handy if you can't get fresh tofu.

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Tofu 1 block
Chilli powder a pinch
Dashi granules a pinch
Noodle stock (mentsuyu) 2 tbsp
Mirin 2 tbsp
Sake (or white wine) 2 tbsp
Soy sauce 3 tbsp
Spring onions 3
Frozen prawns 20
Potato starch in a bit of water as required

Method

1
Rehydrate the freeze-dried tofu in 60℃ water. Wash under running water and squeeze out excess moisture. Cut into 8 pieces.
2
Put 100ml water in a frying pan and bring to the boil. Add the sake, mirin, soy sauce and spring onions and simmer.
3
When it's reduced by half, add the noodle broth, dashi granules, tofu pieces and chilli powder and simmer further.
4
Add the frozen prawns and the potato starch in water to thicken the sauce. Cook until the prawns have defrosted.
5
Transfer to a serving dish. It can be eaten hot or cold.

Tips & Note

The prawns will become small and hard if overcooked so add at the last minute and cook on residual heat only.
