Wrap the tofu in a tea towel and place a heavy saucepan on top. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Cut or slice the carrots and radish into sticks. Mix salt, vinegar, sugar and water and let the vegetables steep for half an hour.
Mix the mayo with sriracha and hoisin.
Put the soy sauce and sesame oil in a bowl. Chop the garlic and ginger very finely or, best of all, crush them. Add to the soy mixture together with the sugar and stir well.
Cut the tofu into thirds lengthways and then halve. Place in the marinade and let it steep for 30-60 minutes.
Cut the cucumber and spring onion into thin slices / rings.
Heat the oil in a pan, add the tofu and marinade to the pan and then fry on both sides.
Halve the baguette, brush with mayo, then top with lettuce leaves, tofu, pickled vegetables, cucumber, coriander and spring onions.
If you like it spicy, there are chilli slices.
