If I’m being honest, just the thought of tofu used to creep me out. I don’t know if it was the consistency, the tastelessness, or just the look of the food, but I could not see myself enjoying it.

But then I was introduced to this recipe. It combines two of my favorite things — fried food and seafood. If both of those sound good to you, you’re going to want to give this a whirl.
