So let’s talk tofu for a minute. First, let’s just acknowledge that it isn’t everyone's’ cup of tea. Some people hate the texture, some people think it smells weird, the taste isn’t for everyone but I would argue that prepared correctly it can be pretty tasty. For me that means crispy on the outside, packed with some yummy and spicy flavors, and paired with something with crunch like sugar snap peas. Still not with me? Just substitute chicken or shrimp for the tofu in this recipe and you are good to go. It will still taste great. You could even use both to please tofu lovers and haters in the same house.
