Smoked tofu?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am making a 5 course seafood based meal. I also have to create a 5 course meal for a vegetarian. The first coarse is a smoked scallop and apple salad. I am wondering if I could smoke little pieces of tofu and sub the scallop for it? I will be using applewood. Has anyone tried smoking tofu before and if so how did it come out? Thank you

Might as well say what the whole menu is, any criticism is welcome!
1. Smoked scallop and apple salad - Parmesan crisp, toasted pine nut, apple cider vinaigrette with arugula
2. Spicy lobster soup - butter poached claw, roasted corn, radish, thai chilli, edamame, shimeji and scallion. With a coconut foam to balance the spicy ness of the broth.
3. Lime sorbet (palette cleanser)- lime sorbet in coquito with coconut caviar.
4. Quinoa crusted sea bass- with sun choke puree, garlic herb butter sauce, and fried leek. And black trumpet risotto
5. "Moms cheesecake" - deconstructed blueberry cheesecake. Blueberry sauce, blueberry caviar, cheesecake ice cream, graham crumble and white chocolate twist

Smoking tofu is a pretty common practice. You'll want to add something else besides just smoke flavor. A marinade or rub for example.

 

Also, either press the tofu to expel water and improve it's uptake of the marinade or freeze it for a meatier texture when thawed.
