Cook's Note

Hello, Saigon
Marinated in Sriracha, tofu takes on a hint of sweet chile. Quick-pickled carrots add acidity and crunch.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Press tofu.

  2. Step 2

    Whisk together fish sauce, 1/4 cup vinegar, sugar, shallot, Sriracha, and ginger. Transfer tofu to a baking dish and top with marinade. Marinate at room temperature, 30 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, toss carrots with remaining vinegar. Season with salt and refrigerate.

  4. Step 4

    Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Coat with vegetable oil and add tofu (reserve marinade). Grill, turning, until crisp and charred in spots, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  5. Step 5

    Generously brush cut sides of baguette with olive oil. Grill until toasted and golden, about 1 minute. Top bread with grilled tofu, carrots, herbs, and a drizzle of reserved marinade.
