what you'll need:
» firm tofu

Cut the tofu
Holding a knife parallel to the chopping board, cut the firm tofu horizontally through the middle. Try to make sure they are the same thickness.
Remove excess moisture
Wrap each piece in kitchen paper and place on a microwavable plate. Microwave for 1 min 30 seconds at 600W.
Sprinkle with pepper
Sprinkle the front and back of each piece with a pinch of black pepper.
Coat each piece with a thin layer of potato starch on both sides.
Fry until crispy
Heat a frying pan on medium and add a drizzle of olive oil. Fry the tofu on both sides until golden and crispy.
Mix the soy sauce, sake, mirin, ginger paste and garlic paste in a small bowl.
Add the sauce
Lower the heat and pour the sauce into the pan. Continue to fry until it becomes thick and glossy. Turn the tofu and move it around the pan to ensure it gets evenly coated in the sauce.
Transfer the tofu to serving plates and top with chopped spring onion and chilli threads (optional).
