Sesame Oil *optional
- Wrap Abura-age with paper towel and warm in microwave. Then gently press it to remove excess oil. *Note: You can do this process using a frying pan.
- Cut Abura-age into small pieces or strips. You may wish to season with Salt. Stir-fry in a frying pan over medium low heat until slightly browned and crispy. A small amount of Sesame Oil can add extra flavour.
