Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the tofu in half horizontally. Keep the tofu stacked; cut crosswise in half to make four rectangles. Cut each rectangle into two triangles. Press tofu.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk 1/2 teaspoons chili sauce, orange zest, orange juice and olive oil. Season the mixture with salt to taste. Set aside.
  3. Pour the remaining 1/3 cup chili sauce into a shallow bowl. Place the panko in a separate shallow bowl. Coat the tofu in the chili sauce and then the panko.
  4. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat half the canola oil over medium heat. Plae half the tofu in the skillet. Pan-fry the tofu, turning once, until outsides are crisped and brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat. Repeat the process with remaining oil and tofu.
  5. Add lettuce and mint to bowl with dressing; toss to coat. Place equal mounds of salad in center of four plates; fan avocado slices on top. Arrange two tofu triangles next to the avocado and serve immediately.
