|Sweet and savory teriyaki tofu.|
|Time||20 minutes, plus time to marinate|
|Directions||Combine the first three ingredients in the dish, add the tofu in a single layer, and flip to coat both sides. Let marinate for 2 hours.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot.
|Notes|| *Mirin is a sweet rice wine that is key to traditional teriyaki. In a pinch, you can use one of these substitutions:
**When I pressed the tofu and baked it without its marinade, I found it very dry. If you buck tradition and bake it in its marinade, go ahead and press the tofu.
