Broiled Tofu with Miso and Sesame Seeds (Tofu Dengaki)
A light, tasty entrée.
Wrap tofu in a clean kitchen towel and let stand for 30 minutes to drain excess water.
Mix miso, sugar, mirin, sake and sesame oil together until smooth.
Cut tofu into 8 oblongs. Broil under, or barbecue over, a high heat for about 3 minutes on each side.
Spread the miso mixture over the tofu, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cook under moderate heat, or to the side of a barbecue, until the miso bubbles slightly and is dry on top.
After cooking, wooden skewers can be inserted through the tofu for easy eating.
