Thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients list). In a small bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar, water and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid and stir to coat. Set aside until serving.

TIP: Stir the onion occasionally so it stays submerged.


While the onion is pickling, grate the carrot (unpeeled). Shred the cos lettuce (see ingredients list). Thinly slice the long green chilli (see ingredients list), if using. Roughly chop the coriander. In a medium bowl, combine the carrot, cos lettuce and chilli (if using). Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to coat.


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and the soy sauce. Drain the Korean BBQ tofu, reserving the marinade in a small bowl, then slice into 1cm strips.


In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the tofu and cook until browned and warmed through, 2 minutes each side. Add the reserved Korean BBQ marinade and simmer until the tofu is well coated, 1 minute.


While the tofu is cooking, heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press, or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Drain the liquid from the pickled onion. Take everything to the table to serve. Top the tortillas with the salad, Korean tofu and pickled onion. Serve with the soy mayo and garnish with the crispy shallots and coriander.
