Sesame Black Pepper Crusted Tofu

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by snickels

This was originally based on a recipe for a crusted tuna dish but I make it with tofu. It's simple and fragrant. My husband really likes it. I usually serve it with soba noodles or a rice dish. It is pretty neutral and goes well with a lot of things.
