Coconut-crusted tofu with peach-lemongrass salsa

Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Tofu

3 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and diced
1 teaspoon lemongrass
1 tablespoon basil, fresh, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar, brown
1 tablespoon vinegar, rice wine
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/3 cups coconut, flaked, unsweetened
2 tablespoon flour, all-purpose
14 ounces tofu, extra-firm
2 tablespoon oil, canola

Recipe Directions for Coconut Tofu

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Set a wire rack on a large baking sheet.

  2. Combine peaches, lemongrass, basil, brown sugar, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; toss to combine.

  3. Mix coconut, flour, and cornstarch in a shallow dish.

  4. Cut the block of tofu lengthwise into 8 thin steaks. Pat the tofu slices dry with a paper towel, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, then press both sides of tofu steak into the coconut mixture.

  5. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 tofu steaks and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent scorching. Transfer the tofu steaks to the rack-lined backing sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.

  6. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat; cook the remaining tofu steaks until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

  7. Serve the tofu with the peach salsa.
