Spicy Teriyaki Pan Fried Tofu
1 (14-ounce) package of extra-firm tofu
2 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons Blue Dragon Spicy Teriyaki Sauce, plus more if desired
Green onions & toasted sesame seeds for garnish, optional
Remove the tofu from the package and drain all the water. Wrap the block of tofu with a cheesecloth, or paper towels. Place the wrapped tofu on a plate. Then, place a stack of 2 to 4 plates over the block of tofu. Let the tofu sit for about 20 to 30 minutes, the longer the better to drain out as much water as possible.
Unwrap the tofu. Cut the tofu in 1-2 inch squares.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, drizzle the oil and add the tofu to the skillet in a single layer. Then, flip the pieces over to the other side. Pan fry this side for about 3 minutes, until golden.
Drizzle 3 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce over the tofu pieces, and then turn off the heat. Flip the tofu pieces around several times so that they’re covered in teriyaki sauce. Transfer the cooked teriyaki tofu to a plate. Sprinkle the tofu with toasted sesame seeds, & sliced green onions, if using.
