The brown sea is dark and full of terrors, but the paywall burns them all away.

quote:

Coconut Tofu
:lesnick: Block of Tofu. 1lb. Extra firm.
:lesnick: Corn starch.
:lesnick: 3 or 4 egg whites.
:lesnick: Panko/Japanese breadcrumbs. They provide the finished product with a nicer texture I feel.
:lesnick: Italian blend breadcrumbs. They taste nice.
:lesnick: Sweetened shredded coconut. We'll need probably a third of one of the bags that you see in the supermarket.

Dip
:lesnick: Pina Colada mix. Powder. Mine came in a 35g pouch.
:lesnick: Crushed pineapples in juice. Pictured below is a 20oz can. I only had a can of chunks which I broke up myself, crushed is what you want.
:lesnick: Like 3 tablespoons of sugar.
:lesnick: 12 oz cream cheese.

Preparation
:lesnick:Get the block of tofu. Extra firm, as illustrated by Alton Brown. Freeze this solid, then thaw it out. This will serve to give it a meatier consistency than if you did not. We like meaty.

:lesnick:Slice it like Alton is demonstrating here, but a lot thinner. Like a lot. Like in the area 1/8" or so. The thinner they are without going overboard, the less we will notice that it is tofu instead of shrimp.

:lesnick:Lay your thin slices out on paper towels and throw a heavy cutting board on top or something. Leave it there for an hour or so. If you're feeling impatient just press on the board yourself till it seems pretty squeezed. Whatever.

:lesnick:Now while your tofu is being pressed, we will make the Pina Colada dipping sauce. This is modeled after Applebee's and after reading a couple of recipes decided that I'd mix the ingredients listed above until tasty to get what I needed.

:lesnick:It may not look like much but it tastes good. I used a hand blender to mix the cream cheese, pina colada mix, sugar, and almost the entire can of pineapples with juice. You may want to hold back on the pineapples a bit and do it to taste but they're my favorite part. That's all. If I had more pineapples around they'd probably go in there too. I like pineapples.

:lesnick:Now you could probably marinate the tofu in some excess pineapple juice for like 15 minutes, which I plan on doing next time. After this optional step, get the oil going. Get a big enough steep-walled pan going with like 1/8"-1/4" of peanut oil or something else with a high smoke point. We want that to be like 325 degress F. If you lack a thermometer like I do at the moment, just drop some coconut shreds in there and see if they take a minute or two to turn brown. That's the temperature we want.

:lesnick:Now I set up the corn starch, egg whites, and coconut/breadcrumbs(both types) combo as pictured. The breadcrumb mixture probably came out to 3 parts coconut, 2 parts panko, 1 part italian breadcrumbs. Go in order from left to right, dipping the pressed strips of tofu into each item. Make sure you get plenty of the breading on the strips.

:lesnick:Drop them into the hot oil, let them go for a couple of minutes till the underside is golden brown and delicious, as pictured. Then flip and wait for the other. You'll have to do this a few times if you made the whole block of tofu.

:lesnick:When they finish in the pan, drop them onto a rack or paper towels or a brown paper bag or something and let them lose some oil and cool off a tiny bit.

:lesnick:Then plate them with the dip(which you have had chillin like a villian in the fridge) and eat. Enjoy. If it sucks, it's not my fault.
Attempted this recipe recently and found the flavor to be a little lackluster. Any advice on how to add a little more excitement?

Whichever of you goons did these, you need to do more.






Middle one's actually me but Manethos (peroxide cowboy) did the rest: Guy was turning them out like crazy when the first round of BAN_ALL_GOONS came down. Never forget those who laid down their forum accounts in service to Lowtax. :patriot:


Also, this is amazing.

I don't mean to get in the middle of your argument, particularly because quibbling over CIG budgetary arcana seems rather like an academic turf war-- the kind that get so vicious because the stakes are so low.

But I do have to ask, Octopode-- because I really don't know-- do you have any misgivings about the funding model, selling high priced ships without limit to backers? Some find this entirely reasonable in a 'caveat emptor' sort of way-- others are disturbed by the potential downside risk and moral questions.

I assume that you're unconvinced by claims about a toxic workplace culture and acts of financial fraud under the Roberts. But if you did encounter undeniable proof, do you think it would jaundice your view of CIG or the game? Would you see them as unrelated -- and support the game while ignoring the rest? Or would you become more critical of the team?

No wrong answers - just was curious to see where you stand on those sorts of matters...
This hasn't been answered, I demand this be answered.
