Long ago, I used to love ordering Bang Bang shrimp at Asian restaurants. When I lived in Greenwich, CT, there was this one place we always used to go to eat, and they had the most amazing Bang Bang shrimp. Really, it’s the sauce that makes this dish, so when I decided to recreate it, I decided to throw it onto tofu. I love tofu. I love how many different ways you can cook it. I love that people say they hate tofu, but then when I make them one of MY tofu recipes, they all of a sudden like it. Tofu, like most other things, is very dependent on how you cook it, and most people just don’t know how. So, if you can learn to cook tofu correctly (which is NOT hard), I promise you that you will like it and even eat it regularly. Once you learn how to cook the tofu, then you can make this amazing sauce and have your own Copycat Bang Bang Tofu at home!
The thing I love most about the Bang Bang Tofu sauce, is that it is so spicy, yet not mouth burning. It has just the right amount of spice, and it blends with the tofu and crispy tofu crust perfectly.
I ended up serving this Bang Bang Tofu over rice, because I had lots of extra sauce, and then I added more sauce to the rice. It was amazing. Everything is just a vehicle for sauce, right?!
