Pidan Doufu Salad, Northern Style
|Pidan Doufu Salad, Northern Style|
3 or 4 pidan
1 pound square silken bean curd
1 Tablespoon thin soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
dash of MSG (optional)
1. Rinse and remove the shell from every pidan as instructed above, then cut each one into six or eight pieces.
2. Drain the liquid from the bean curd using a wire strainer, then dice it into half-inch cubes. Rinse the bean curd in cold water, drain well, and place it in a shallow dish with the pidan before adding the soy sauce, sesame oil and MSG, if using it. Mix gently and well.
Note: For this recipe, we like to use the Vitasoy brand of silken tofu in a nineteen ounce container. We find others do not work as well.
