Yaki Dofu



Yaki Dofu is a Japanese term for firm tofu that has been lightly grilled or broiled on both sides, so that both sides are slightly browned. The grilling also evaporates some water, helping to firm it up the tofu even more.

It used to be made by putting pieces of tofu on skewers and grilling it over a fire. Now it is done under grills or broilers.

Cooking Tips

Yaki Dofu can be served hot on its own with sauces, or used as an ingredient. It is good for simmering, as it will hold its shape well.

Language Notes

In Japanese, "yaki" means "grilled".

Bon mots

"Most importantly, what you get from a greasy spoon is a certain kind of smell that has been almost legislated out of existence. It is cigaretty, certainly, and it also has the catch-throat quality of smoking fat. It is a warm, companionable fug that rises to meet you as you step through the door on a late autumn day and it is how public places used to smell in my childhood in the 1970s. It is real, it is human, and it beats anything I know."

-- Kathryn Hughes (English writer).
