How do you make tofu taste like seafood?

I had the terrific idea to make a squid out of tofu today. But how do you make it taste like seafood?

Answer #1

If you’re not vegetarian, marinate the tofu in some shrimp or lobster broth for a few hours. Or sprinkle with fish oil (which is extremely powerful stuff, so you will only need a few drops).

If you are vegetarian,a common method of imparting a fishy flavor to tofu is mixing it with kelp or dulse granules. These can easily be found in Asian supermarkets. You wouldn’t want to use nori. It’s flavor is too mild.
