  • 1 block of firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. Start by pressing the tofu to remove excess water. Once pressed, cut it into rectangular slices.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, minced garlic, sesame oil, grated ginger, soy sauce, and honey to create the marinade.
  3. Place the tofu slices in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to seep in.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Grease the grill grates to prevent sticking.
  5. Place the marinated tofu slices on the grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until grill marks appear.
  6. While grilling, baste the tofu with the leftover marinade to enhance the flavor.
  7. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the tofu during the last minute of grilling.
  8. Once the tofu is nicely grilled and slightly caramelized, remove it from the grill.
  9. Garnish with chopped green onions and an extra drizzle of teriyaki sauce.
