The base for this amazing Szechuan dish is the spice combination of the garlic, ginger, Szechuan pepper and chilli flakes. They work like old friends who have reunited in a flavour explosion. To take the edge off this spicy mix, I’ve added soy sauce, for its saltiness, and spring onions, which lift the flavours with their fresh fragrance. The crispy tofu, which begins to soften and soak up all the amazing flavours, is the perfect vehicle to carry such an explosive sauce, and the result is a dish that ignites every imaginable taste sensation in your mouth.
