Seafood Tofu (海鲜豆腐) LTU October - Soy Bean #1

Good Monday to dear all ^_^     大家星期一好啊!!
Little Thumbs Up for is  September is over. Our host from Butter, Flour and MeJoceline  have done a great job, 267 posts were collected.  *=D> applause  谢谢超级棒的Joceline.*~^o^~ cheer
Please visit here if you are interested to read more. 

Last week when I was  preparing this delicious tofu dish for dinner, my second (Sam) comes along ......
Sam goes:  'Mum, this smell so good! Another dish for LTU? Who is the special host for this month?'
I was not surprise he said it is for LTU but I was surprise he is asking who is the host because he never ask about the host. 
Mum : Auntie Mich from Singapore is hosting for LTU this October.'
Sam: Auntie Mich is so brilliant. She chose 'soy bean'  and Soy Bean can make my favourite food 'TOFU' 
Mum: ...LOLs

Sam loves tofu, he would eat tofu no matter how it is prepared :D To be actual all my kids enjoy eating tofu. My fil and mil is runing a home base tofu business for 30 over years. They make soft pressed tofu, fresh block pressed tofu, yellow bean curd and tofu puff (deep fried tofu -aged). They sell their tofu in the Miri open air wet market. If you happen to come to my town Miri, you must try their tofu. Their tofu  sell of very early every morning. If you come at 7am to buy, they will ask to come back earlier tomorrow morning. (I will have another post talking about why you must try their tofu :D)

Back to LTU for October our host is Mich from Piece of Cake. *~^o^~ cheerWould like to thank her for hosting this event. 
What i am sharing today is a special home made tofu called Seafood Tofu. I ate this in a restaurant here and we all love it. Saw this recipe in a food magazine so just give it a go. It taste just like the one we had in the restaurant, only that home made is less oily and it is really YUM!!

今天分享海鲜豆腐, 相信您在餐馆吃过类式的吧!!
我家宝贝很喜欢, 他们都爱吃豆腐做的菜肴. 爱吃豆腐可能是他们的公公婆婆是做豆腐生意的吧..呵呵!! 我家公公和婆婆是做家庭式豆腐生意的.已经做了将近30多年了. 每天的豆腐是拿到巴刹的菜市里卖. 很早就卖完的, 大概7点早上就断货了. 有卖水豆腐,白和黄豆干和豆腐pok. 如果您来Miri一定要裳裳我公公,婆婆的豆腐呢^_^

Pan fry this seafood tofu is not so oily compare to deep fry.

1) Mashed tofu with a fork.
2) Prepare some fish paste. ( i use homemade fish paste - my mum made them for me :p)
3) Add the mashed tofu, fish paste and all the seasoning in a big mixing bowl and give them a good mixed.
4) Fill the tofu mixture into a non stick loaf baking pan (i greased the pan with some cooking oil) Steam for 20 minutes.

  6. Doreen , I made something like this last time but it didn't turn out as wonderful as yours ! I got the recipe from the book that I've borrowed from the library ( as usual ! ) :P I guess the secret is to steam it first before frying :D Yeah , coating it cornflour ( I usually use tapioca starch ) is way better than making the batter . Thanks for cooking er sharing the recipe ;D

  8. Never think that making seafood tofu can be so simple. Must be delicious with homemade mayo. When are you going to share mayo recipe? :)

    I really have to salute to all of you that make your tofu from scratch... I love to do that too but I will be the only one eating my homemade tofu :p

  10. Mui Mui, I like seafood tofu. In a Malaysian restaurant here, they have their own seafood tofu as their signature dish & we had ordered for a few times and they aren't cheap. This must be one of the precious recipes that I have come across with, something not as common as a cake recipe, you know what I mean. Thanks for sharing.
