Yuzu is now in abundant in Japan.
Some people say Yuzu is somewhere between grapefruit and lime.
It's a very refreshing citrus not as tart as lemon.
Just perfect for making dressing.
Today, I'm paring with fried tofu to make a vegan comforting dish.
This vegan yuzu fried tofu can be topped on the noodle and salad.
Of course just delicious as is!

1; Put something heavy on top of the tofu to remove the moisture for 15mins.

<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!
・If the sauce is too tangy for you, feel free to add less vinegar OR add more sugar to balance out.
・You can swap YUZU for lime.
Store it in a air-tight container in the fridge for 2 days. but it's the best to eat right after!
