Tofu Steak with Fried Onions

If you are not a number 1 fan of tofu, as I am, this recipe will do the trick. These fillets are heavenly good, the saltiness of the sauce together with the sweetness of the fried onions is just perfect. Give it a go, you will be amazed, and that is a guarantee!!

400g firm tofu cut in 1cm slices
1/2 cup light shoyo
1/2 cup rice vinegar
2 cloves garlic smashed
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
Black pepper
1 onions cut in big slices
Vegetable oil
1 - In a baking tray mix all the ingredients apart from the tofu and the onions.
2 - Add the tofu and let it rest in the fridge for 24 hours, turning the tofu slices in the middle of the time.
3 - Heat a frying pan with a little bit of vegetable oil and fry the tofu slices, three at a time. 
4 - When they are golden brown pour two tbsp of the sauce on top of the tofu slices and fry it a bit longer so all the flavours can be absorbed. Repeat the process until all the tofu slices are fried.
5 - When you are done with the tofu, add a bit more of vegetable oil to the frying pan and fry the onions until golden brown and soft.
6 - Add the onions on top of the tofu fillets and serve right away.
