      Quick, easy and tasty! I used Braggs instead of soy sauce and it was a tad salty for me and used siracha instead of tabasco. I loved the texture from sesame seeds. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      This tasted wonderful. I didn't have sesame oil so had to go without. I let my tofu marinate for about an hour before cooking. This is delicious. Thanks for sharing Kitchen Kozy!
