  • 300 grams silken tofu cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 small handful finely sliced scallions
  • about half a cup of cooking oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce (for strict vegetarians, there are vegetarian oyster sauces)
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • juice of a quarter of a lemon


  • Heat the cooking oil and fry the tofu cubes until lightly browned. Scoop out and transfer to a plate.
  • Pour off the oil from the pan. The remaining oil that coats the bottom should be enough to cook the onion leaves in.
  • Reheat the pan. Cook the scallions for about 30 seconds and push to one side.
  • Pour in the oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, chili-garlic sauce and light soy sauce. Stir.
  • Add the tofu cubes to the pan. Toss with the green onions and cook for another 30 seconds or just until heated through.
  • Off the heat, squeeze in the lemon juice and toss a few more times. Serve the silken tofu with four sauces hot. With rice or by itself.
