Korean Pan Seared Tofu

Updated: Nov 30, 2021

This is one of my absolute favorite dishes from childhood, I know you'll love the savory sauce over the slightly chewy and soft tofu! When buying tofu, make sure to get firm so that it holds together, and I love Trader Joe's Sprouted Organic Tofu for this recipe!

Korean tofu


Korean Pan Seared Tofu


1 Block Firm tofu

1 Tbsp avocado oil


3 Tbsp GF Soy sauce OR 2.5 Tbsp Coconut Aminos+1 tsp Fish sauce

1 Tbsp Filtered water

1 Tbsp Green onion, diced

1/8 tsp Black pepper

1/4-1/2 tsp Gochugaru pepper, to your spiciness level

1/2 tsp Sesame seeds


Drain and press tofu for at least 10-15 minutes. You can use a tofu press or place the tofu in-between layers of towels and set a heavy pan on top to gently squeeze out the excess water.

While tofu is draining, in a small bowl, combine all of the sauce ingredients and set aside.

When tofu is ready, cut it into 1/4” slices. Heat a skillet over med/high heat, add oil and fry each side for about 3-5 minutes until golden brown.

Remove, layer on a plate and spoon sauce over top!
