Now, my original plan was to do a dish for at lest three films, but with the zombie apocalypse isolation situation shopping panic; well I was lucky to get one done. Shelves have been pretty empty around my city.
I ended up doing it backwards because of the shopping issues. I was able to find some tofu at the store, and tried to think what I could make with it. That's when I remembered a subplot in the 2012 Tim Burton/Johnny Depp film Dark Shadows. They owned a fishing cannery.
I've covered this film in the first year of this blog (Day 281) but for anyone who hasn't seen it here's a brief summary.
plot: After rejecting his lover Angelique, who is a witch, Barnabas Collins, has a curse placed on him and his family. He is then turned into a vampire by Angelique and is locked in a coffin and buried for 200 years. When Barnabas is released by accident in the 1970's, he returns to his family home to find that the few remaining family members are still living under a form of the curse, and that Angelique has taken over the town. The two immortals end up in a battle of wills as each tries to gain control of the small fishing town they live in.

Even though, there are a bunch of scenes where the family are eating, you don't see a lot of closeups of the food. But, as I said, the situation we are currently in, caused me to work this backwards. I ended up making a Mock Fish (tofu) and Chips.
1 cups breadcrumbs
1/2 package of tofu
2 medium or 1 large potato
seasoning of your choice
I started by chopping the potatoes into large strips. I ended up keeping the skins on, and having a thicker cut. I then seasoned with salt, pepper, and a spiced seasoning mix. Then placed them in the oven for half an hour on 350 degrees.
While that was in the oven, I drained and sliced my tofu before dredging it through the egg and breadcrumbs.
I am surprised how well this ended up fitting together. It's not the way I had hoped to go with this month's movie selections, but in the end it worked nicely. Okay, I'll be back at the end of the month with the group round up.
