Steps to cook

  • Step 1

    Combine the snow pea sprouts and bean shoots. Set aside. Mix the mirin, soy sauce, chilli and 1 tablespoon water in separate bowl until well combined. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Combine the breadcrumbs and sesame seeds. Cut each tofu half into 3 slices. Coat each slice in the flour, shaking away any excess. Dip into the egg, then press into the sesame seed mixture to cover the tofu completely.

  • Step 3

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. In batches, cook the tofu for 1-1 1/2 minutes each side or until golden. Drain on paper towel.

  • Step 4

    Arrange the lettuce leaves on serving plates. Top with the snow pea sprout mixture and drizzle with the dressing. Arrange the tofu on top of the salad to serve.

Tips & variations

  • Mirin: A sweet spirit-based rice liquid used in Japanese sauces, marinades and dressings. You can replace it with sweet sherry for a similar flavour. Sesame seeds: Rich in nutrients, they help with tissue repair and renewal and are said to help the body cope with stress.

  • Peanut oil: This oil tolerates high heat, so is ideal for shallow frying. It can be used in Asian-style dressings and stir-fried dishes. If you are cooking for others, be aware that severe peanut allergies are relatively common.
