Pan Fried Minced Meat Tofu

I learnt this dish from my mum.  She deep fried the tofu and they were very crispy and delicious, but I opted for the healthier version of pan frying them.

1 packet soft tofu
150g minced meat
8 medium sized prawns - deshelled
1 large egg
2 stalks green onion - chopped
2 red chillies - remove seeds and chopped
2 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste
