This recipe was adapted from Easy Hoisin Shrimp from Gimme Some Oven.
It’s true what they say, we eat with our eyes first, that’s why I knew I had to give this recipe a try when I saw it on Gimme Some Oven. However, because the original recipe uses shrimp, I had to make a few changes~ I don’t eat animal flesh and one other very important reason~ I have a shellfish allergy.
Tofu replaced the shrimp, coconut aminos was used instead of soy sauce, I added a bit of hot chili sauce for spice, sesame oil and cilantro, I used because I absolutely love their flavors together.
I love that this recipe is so versatile, the original recipe uses shrimp, I used tofu and I’m sure you could use chicken, salmon or beef.
Ali, over at Gimme Some Oven, served her dish up on a bed of rice, while I served my tofu on a bed of farro, because it’s what I had on hand. It would also be great on a bed of veggies or noodles.
