Marinated Fried Tofu

2 blocks extra firm tofu
4 cups veggie oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp hot pepper paste
1 tsp sesame oil
chopped scallion for garnish

Cut tofu in blocks diagonally into 8 triangular pieces. Dry on paper towel.

In a deep saucepan, heat oil. Put half of the tofu in oil and fry until golden brown. Fry remaining tofu.

Place fried tofu in a large microwavable container.

Add soy sauce, garlic, sugar, water and hot pepper. Cover with lid; shake well to combine.

Microwave for 5 minutes. Shake again. Set aside for 1 hour to allow tofu to absorb flavor. Serve hot or cold. Garnish with scallion slices.
