Reminiscent of K-Paul’s Kitchen’s Blackened Redfish, from Good Time Eatin’ in Cajun Country
6 teaspoons onion powder
6 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
6 teaspoons file
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 lbs extra firm tofu, sliced 1/2 inch thick
oil for dipping tofu
In a bowl, combine the seasoning mixture. Dip the tofu in the oil and then in the seasoning mixture. Fry in a hot iron skillet until blackened on both sides.
My question is about the "6 teaspoons file". Frankly, I have no idea what that could possibly mean, or stand for. Help!
