Grilled Spicy Asian Tofu

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ChandraSoleil

This is really good - no leftovers, even carnivorous children went back for seconds. The marinade provides subtle heat while the teriyaki glaze is sweet & smoky. Serve with Asian Grilled Vegetables (search for the recipe) and steamed rice or udon noodles. I use Sriracha Sauce for the marinade - green top, rooster on the bottle - stuff is the best and HOT! I use Kikkoman "Takumi Collection Spicy Miso " Teriyaki sauce to baste. Really good....

Do not mix the tofu dish with the vegetables, marinate, *then* try to stir fry. Marinating longer is a good idea.
