Deep-fried Edamame, Bacon, and Tofu

A deep- fried dish made from what's in your refrigerator Use a spoon to mix and deep-fry it. This is also delicious cold.

Ingredients

Tofu
300 g
Edamame (frozen)
100 g
Bacon
100 g
Imitation crab sticks
50 g
Egg
1
Kakakuriko (or flour)
4 tablespoons
Oil for deep frying

Steps

1. Cut the bacon and imitation crab into thin pieces of your desired width. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
2. I didn't want to get my hands dirty, so I used a spoon to mix everything together. The tofu evened out pretty well.
3. Add your oil to a frying pan and heat. Once it starts popping, use the spoon to scoop out the mixture into the oil. Be careful of the oil splattering.
4. Deep-fry both sides. Drain the oil on a paper towel, transfer to a serving plate, and they're complete.
5. If you want to make them big and round, please substitute flour for the katakuriko. In the image, I used spinach, salmon, and tofu.

Story Behind this Recipe
