And since they both appeal to many audiences, this duo would be a fantastic option for any gathering or special occasion. Come and give these a try with me!
I will narrow down the steps for each dish, beginning with the ever lovely Tofu Sisig.
How to make Easy Tofu Sisig:
To start this off, all you will have to do is take your 1 lb. of tofu, and cut them up into cubes. Then we will need our air fryer so we can begin air frying these cubes for 15 minutes. Put them aside for now, and we can proceed to creating the dressing.
For this, you will need ½ cup of Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons of Chili flavor Knorr Liquid Seasoning, ½ teaspoon of onion powder, a dash of ground black pepper, and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix all of these together in a bowl nicely. Then set this aside.
Grab your pan, and heat up 2 tablespoons of butter inside. Add 1 onion you’ve diced, and then sauté this. Once it has gotten soft, you can incorporate 1 red bell pepper and 1 green bell pepper, both of which you’ve sliced. Keep cooking this for 1 minute, and then place your air-fried tofu from earlier inside. Continue cooking, but only for 30 seconds.
Now get your remaining butter, and melt this in a metal plate because this would be great as a sizzling plate. And then move your tofu sisig onto the plate, and top this with your savory, semi-spicy dressing. Make sure to serve this while it is perfectly sizzling hot! Let’s move on to our second dish then.
How to cook Baked Garlic Salmon:
Go ahead, and preheat your oven to 180°C, which would be equivalent to about 356°F. As you wait, you can begin rubbing 1 teaspoon of salt all over your 2 lbs. of salmon fillet. Now transfer this to a baking pan.
You can also start working on the topping by combining ½ cup of Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Make sure to mix these thoroughly, and then you can spread this over your salted salmon fillet.
Afterwards, put the salmon in your oven, and bake this for about 12 to 15 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on the oven so that you don’t overcook your delicious creation. Once it is all good and cooked, simply take the baking pan out carefully. And then top your salmon with ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese, and 3 tablespoons of toasted garlic. And there you have it!
