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....

My whole family liked it. Want to marinate it longer next time though.

This is one of the best tofu recipes I've made. I used Frank's Red Hot for the hot pepper sauce, and served it over brown rice. It was quick and easy to make, and the flavor was fabulous. I accidentally added the teriyaki sauce along with all the other marinade ingredients, but it worked fine that way too. I'll definitely be making this again.
