The Making of Mock Cod Fish using Tofu




The mock cod fish that you find in Vegetarian restaurant is definitely not made from tofu. The actually use some processed vegetarian ingredients which I am not sure what it contain.
I tried to make cod fish using tofu and seaweeds as the skin. The dish turned out quite good and my kids was thrilled to see a mock cod fish! LOL!
This is a simple to prepare steamed dish.

Ingredients
Tofu, 1 block
Seaweed (sushi type), 1 piece
Sesame Oil
Light Soya sauce
Garlic Oil (optional) or you can just use olive oil
Vegetarian Oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon
Oyster Mushroom, around 8 pcs
Parsley for garnishing

Cut tofu block in to the shape of a cod fish cut. Use a scissor to cut the seaweed into strips around 1 ½ cm width. Wet the seaweed strips and wrap it to the side of the tofu. Add sesame oil, light soya sauce, garlic oil, oyster mushroom and vegetarian oyster sauce. Steam the mock cod fish in high heat for around 20 minutes. Serve with white rice.

Pete,

The few times I ate mock food was during my Fatherinlaw's funeral. As a meat eater, I was quite weary of eating mock meat.

The mock duck was very nice, though I don't think it was like duck.

I happen to have a block of water toufu here for my daughter, May be she will try your mock cod.

I don't eat toufu because on principal I refuse to eat it. a block of it cost $4.99 here.

This sounds so wonderful and it's really inventive! There just aren't enough home-made fish alternatives for vegans.
