Claypot Tofu with Seafood Recipe

Sunday, September 16, 2012 | Labels: , , |

Tofu cooked claypot style with a variety of vegetables and seafood is always one of my favourite tofu dishes to order.  It is perfectly easy to recreate at home although it is a little bit more time consuming as the dish should be cooked in a wok prior to being simmered in the claypot.  You can serve the dish in the claypot at the table as the claypot does a good job of keeping the ingredients hot or use a serving dish.  For today's feature, I used fried tofu, Chinese cabbage, some shrimp, squid, pork and more vegetables.  Very easy and an excellent dish to go with steaming hot rice.  The dish can be simpler if you choose to add less ingredients or as luxurious as you like.

Claypot Seafood Tofu in Abalone Sauce

I used Yuen Chun's abalone and chicken sauce as the main seasoning which adds a great umami taste to the dish.  This dish is part of my Yuen Chun series, an ongoing project on this blog.

Serving suggestion: with rice


10 pre-fried tofu pieces (you can also use egg tofu)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 carrot, sliced into matchsticks
1/2 Chinese (nappa) cabbage, sliced
2 stalks green onions, sliced
100g pork, sliced (patted dry)
1small squid, sliced (patted dry)
10 small shrimp
4 baby corn, sliced lengthwise

Seasoning: (please do a taste test and adjust according to your preferences)
4 tablespoons abalone sauce
2 teaspoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar (if needed - note that different brands of oyster sauces will have different sweetness levels)
1 tablespoon Chinese Shaoxing wine (rice wine)
2 tablespoons water


Firstly, heat up your wok until almost smoking.  Add 3 tablespoons of oil and swirl to coat.  Turn heat to low and add garlic.  Saute until aromatic.  Add the pork and stir fry until almost cooked.  Add shrimp and squid.  Add in the vegetables and the tofu pieces. Stir fry for a minute.  Remove everything from the wok.

Heat up a claypot.  Once hot, add 1 tablespoon of oil to prevent sticking.  Add in the ingredients from earlier and pour in the seasoning.

Bring to a boil and turn heat to low.  Allow to simmer covered for about 5 minutes.  Remove cover and turn heat to high to bring to a boil again.  Remove from stove.  Serve immediately.
