Steamed-Ground Shrimp Stuffed Tofu - Putting My Palate-Memory into Real

Sunday, October 3, 2010

To be frank, not many good Chinese restaurants in Edmonton (or I might not explore much, I would say). One which we often come for a lunch or dinner is Wok King, the one in China town. It is family oriented restaurant, it is not big, only have 6-4 seater tables and 2 or 3 round bigger tables. It ain't fancy either. But what we love about this restaurant is the taste of the foods they serve mostly are close to what we have back home. One of the foods we regularly ordering is this steamed ground shrimp stuffed tofu.

When we were there I tried to memorize the taste and think of what seasoning they put on, and one of these days I had a chance to try to make it at home. And this is what I want to share with you.

Ingredients:
- 3 blocks tofu, cut into rectangular shape (as shown on the pictures)
- 2 green onion

Stuffing:
- 200g shrimp, peeled (I added some ground chicken too)
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 clove of shallot
- 2 tsp of oyster sauce
- 1 tsp of ground white pepper
- 1Tbsp corn starch

Sauce:
- 6Tbsp soy sauce
- 1Tbsp rice wine
- 1Tbsp sesame oil
- 1Tbsp fine granulated sugar


Steamed Tofu w/ Soy sauce

Directions:
In a food processor, process all of the ingredients for stuffing, except corn starch until smooth. Transfer it into a bowl and add the corn starch and mix it well. Scoop out some of the center part of tofu to place the stuffing. Place the stuffing at the center of tofu, then steam it for 45minutes.
While waiting, prepare the sauce by mixing all of the ingredients for sauce. Warm it up in a microwave for 40seconds to allow the sugar to be easily dissolved.
To serve, place the steamed tofu on a serving plate, pour the sauce over and sprinkle some freshly cut green onion.

And score!
