Although tofu is usually grilled on skewers in Japan,Steven Raichlen has taken an easier approach here, by cutting and grilling the tofu in steaklike slabs.    More Tofu Recipes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar and lemon zest and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the lemon juice. Whisk into the saucepan and bring to a boil, then cook over low heat for 1 minute, stirring. Let the teriyaki sauce cool.

Step 3    

Light a grill. Lightly oil the grate. Pat the tofu dry with paper towels. Place in a shallow baking dish and brush with the sesame oil. Grill the tofu over a medium-hot fire, basting with the teriyaki sauce, until heated through and browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a platter. Drizzle with the remaining sauce, sprinkle with the scallions and sesame seeds and serve.
