Tofu Serves 2
Nuoc Cham Yield = 1 cup

1 lb. (about) extra-firm tofu
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
canola oil for frying
scallions, sliced on the bias (optional — they’re just for garnish)
Sriracha (optional — I like adding a squirt into the nuoc cham or directly onto the tofu)

For the nuoc cham:
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup fish sauce
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 to 3 garlic cloves, sliced or minced
2 red Thai chilies, halved lengthwise, seeded or not, and thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
