tofish n' chips

There was a rumour this would be the recipe this week and I got started early, for once! The recipe calls for slivered almonds then says to grind them, I bought ground almonds to save a step.




I carved out fish shapes free-hand, I tried to make this guy smile. I don't have subconcious desires to eat fish, I just thought it was cute!



Finished fishies on cooling rack:


I made some with small heart shaped cookie cutters. They're more like "nuggets." The leftover tofu from the cutouts can be used for a tofu scramble later, or a stir fry.


Made tartar sauce with nayonnaise and a tiny bit of relish:


This is something I'm going to make again and again and again. They taste like the Zoglos tofu cutlets, because I didn't use the kelp the recipe called for. Baked some potatoes and sweet potatoes, squirted it with lemon....mmmm. I spent many of my childhood summers on the Gaspe coast eating cod fish, so this was sentimental.



ETA:
I made most of mine thin and a couple thick, the thick ones weren't as yummy because there was too much plain tofu taste. Know what I mean? I can't remember the measurements, think about how much plain tofu you want to taste when you're cutting it up!

day-um, carla! you got going on this quick. I'm so glad to hear that they turned out, and turned out so well! I think I might try both recipes this week - both the tofu and the chickpea versions :)

Did the tofu get chewy at all, or was it still soft?

Mishka - I might have to try both versions too! :O)

They're chewy! Similar to the texture of Zoglo's cutlets. I used extra-firm tofu and patted the water out. Mmmm.

I have leftover cornmeal coating, I might dredge some cauliflour in it and bake it.

Totally unrelated - Anyone else having issues with photographs loading slowly or not at all with the new Blogger? I am. :O/
