What is fish tofu?
Fish tofu is not actually tofu and is a derivative or seafood alternative to the original tofu. It is known for being an excellent source of meat and protein which helps in increasing the growth of nails, hair, and eyelashes in the human body. The fish tofu does not contain actual tofu as well but fish paste and soybean oil in order to help it retain its texture for handling. Tofu should be defrosted before starting any cooking procedure and should be thawed and excess water should be removed for safety measures. It is often stir-fried and used in salads and side dishes etc. It is to be noted that people who are allergic to soybeans or nuts should refrain from consuming them as they can be allergic to them too. It is usually kept frozen to increase its shelf life and consumed immediately if it is raw and opened.
