  • 400 g firm tofu frozen then thawed
  • 1 large nori sheet
  • 8 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 150 ml plant milk
  • 200 g breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Oil to cook


  • Squeeze out all of the water from the tofu between two chopping boards and leave to rest.
  • Cut into 4 squares.
  • Cut the nori sheet into squares that roughly fit the shape and size of the tofu fillets, using a dash of water to stick to the tofu.
  • Mix 4 tbsp cornstarch with the milk and leave aside.
  • Mix the remaining 4 tbsp cornstarch with the onion and garlic powders and dust the tofu.
  • Dip the dusted tofu in the cornstarch paste.
  • Then dip into a bowl filled with the breadcrumbs.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until brown, flipping halfway.


  • Gluten-free breadcrumbs can also be used
  • Additional spreads and fillings can be added alongside the tofu fish fillet in the bun
  • Fillets can also be cooked using an air fryer or deep-fried – though deep-frying will increase the energy (calorie) content of this recipe.
