  • 20 ounces firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup red miso
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin rice wine
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seeds


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 high heat for about 3 minutes on each side.

Spread miso mixture over tofu, sprinkle with sesame seeds and broil under medium heat, until the miso bubbles slightly and is dry on top.
