Kosher salt or sea salt for seasoning
1/3 cup cornstarch
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
- To cut the tofu for frying, cut the block in half horizontally to form two rectangular planks.
- Layer 3 paper towels on a plate. Place tofu onto the paper towels and put another layer of towels on top and gently press the tofu planks to remove excess moisture.
- Cut each plank into 1 inch cubes. Season with salt.
- Heat a non-stick skillet with the oil until hot but not smoking. Coat only enough tofu with the cornstarch that you can cook at one time (if you coat too many, the pieces that are waiting to be cooked will get gummy). Place the tofu into the hot oil in a single layer and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Turn the tofu and continue cooking until all sides are browned. Serve immediately.
