A few notes:
- Firm or extra firm tofu is used in this recipe. This will result in a chewier, meaty-like center. Alternatively, soft tofu can be used for a softer center.
- This recipe requires a large amount of vegetable oil. To avoid using large amounts of oil, the tofu can be baked but the texture will not be the same as fried. To bake the tofu, press the tofu as instructed until dry and cut into small pieces. Coat in 1-2 tbsp of vegetable oil and bake for 40-45 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- The soy scallion sauce is best served when it is hot. If preferred, more than 2 scallions can be used for a tastier sauce.
- Store the tofu and soy scallion sauce separately in an airtight container for up to 3 days
