Our 20-minute sweet and sticky teriyaki tofu is a brilliant recipe for when you’re craving something fresh and light. Teriyaki is a cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine where foods are grilled with a glaze of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The word teriyaki derives from the Japanese word ‘teri’, meaning gloss or shine, and ‘yaki’, which refers to the cooking method of grilling. Served with roasted bok choi and steamed rice, and topped with sesame seeds for a lovely layer of texture, this deliciously simple dish is a real weeknight winner
