  1. Preheat the oven to 480°F / 250°C.
  2. Peel the potatoes. Cut them in wedges or fries. Put them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Add oil, spices and corn starch on top. Mix it well so they're all coated. Spread them around the baking tray so they don't overlap each other. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until golden and crisp.


  1. Cut the two large slices of tofu in half, so you have 4 pieces. Cut the nori into the forms of the tofu and put the nori sheet on the tofu slices. Press the nori a bit onto the tofu so that it sticks. 

  2. Combine all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt on a deep plate. Coat all the tofu filets in the flour and set them aside. Then add corn starch, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and turmeric to the rest of the flour on the plate. Add more flour if there isn't much left. Add seltzer water and whisk until it's a slightly thick, runny batter.

  3. Prepare a pan and fill enough canola oil so it covers the bottom and bring it to medium to high heat.
  4. Dip the tofu with the nori sheet into the batter, flip until coated on all sides and put it in the hot pan. Pan-fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden.
  5. Once the wedges are ready, put them on a plate and stack the tofish on top. Garnish with lemon wedges and enjoy!
