Spicy Shrimp with Bean Curd(Tofu)

I love tofu especially the silken and medium consistency type of soft tofu.Tofu or bean curd is a food for everyone especially toddler and elderly people.Tofu is rich in high-quality protein. It is also a good source of B-vitamins and iron .Tofu can be use or combine together in many type of dishes .Most Asian store in America carry various type of tofu in their store. You can find different brand of soft tofu ,fried tofu,marinated tofu,smoked tofu to gluten tofu.I always store few boxes of tofu at home.Tofu have long shelf life if it's remain sealed or unopened.Since I like spicy and shrimp,I combine those together with tofu and make a delicious Spicy Shrimp Tofu!!

1 box medium soft tofu(cut into 8 pieces)
10 shrimp,shelled and deviened
3 tbsp sambal tumis or sambal olek
1 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
1 tbsp tamarind powder
3-4 tbsp water
1 large onion,peeled and sliced
some chopped scallion
4-5 tbsp corn oil
1:Prepare large skillet or wok with oil at medium heat.Pan fry tofu on both side until lightly brown.Remove tofu and set aside.
2:Use the same skillet,add in sambal and sliced onion,stir both for 1--2 minutes.Add in water ,sugar ,salt and tamarind powder.Mix all ingredients well.When the sauce bubbly boil,add in shrimp.Coo for another 1-2 minutes .
3:Add in fried-pan tofu into the skillet,carefully stir and mix together.Check the seasoning before dish out and serve warm .

This looks really good. I am horrible when it comes to preparing tofu, it always comes out wrong. This dish however looks like something I would order in a restaurant.
