Korean Pan Fried Tofu with Spicy Sauce

Tofu itself has a very mild taste so the sauce is really important. ย In this recipe, the tofu is crispy on the outside and soft inside. ย With the combination of the spicy sweet soy sauce, this is one of the best fried tofu dish I’ve had. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • 6 slices of firm tofu (each about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Japanese style soy sauce (kikkoman)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 stalk scallions, finely chopped
  • sesame seeds


  1. Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick rectangles.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. ย Add the tofu, pan fried for 1 minute, then lower the heat. ย Cook over low heat on each side for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. In a bowl, mix the garlic, soy sauce, honey, chili flakes, and sesame oil.
  4. Pour the sauce over the tofu. Sprinkle sesame seeds and serve.
