Easy Tofu Fillet Sandwich with Tartar Sauce

What you need: 

1/3 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup bread crumbs
lemon pepper to taste, Italian or other preferred dry seasoning
12 oz. extra firm tofu
3 whole wheat sandwich buns OR toasted bread
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise substitute
2 teaspoon each of lemon juice, chopped pickle, and onion
salt and pepper to taste
fresh lettuce
tomato slices

What you do: 

Begin preparing your tofu by cutting into about 1/2 thick slices. Press and drain these well, then freeze overnight to improve texture.
The next day, prepare your breading by mixing cornmeal, flour, bread crumbs, and your seasoning thoroughly in a bowl. Bread your tofu slices completely, and then deep-fry for about five minutes or until completely cooked--times will vary based on your methods and temperature.
Set your fillets aside to drain on a paper towel as you prepare your tartar sauce. Mix vegan mayo, pickle, and onion well in a small bowl, then add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste. You might alternately just want to use the vegan mayo; its all up to you.
Spread as much as you like on half of each bun, then layer up with lots of crisp lettuce and juicy tomato slice. Add a fillet, and voile!

this was exactly what i wanted today and it was pretty yummy.  not exactly like the real deal, but still a tasty sandwhich.  i didn't have breadcrumbs so i crushed up some garlic herb crackers and it worked great.  i didn't freeze my tofu because i can never plan that far ahead, but it didn't seem to matter.  i added a tablesppoon of pickle juice to my tartar sauce and ditched the onion because there's a similar recipe on here that made it that way. i didn't realize i missed tartar sauce until i tried this!  i wish i would have taken a picture because it looked really good too!


We really, really enjoyed these.  Very yummy!  :)
