Yaki tofu is grilled firm tofu with a slightly charred flavor. Add it to sukiyaki and simmered dishes.
Yaki Tofu (焼き豆腐), or broiled firm tofu, is often used in Sukiyaki and simmered dishes. It’s firmer and denser than regular firm tofu and can withstand long cooking without crumbling. It’s also porous and can easily absorb broths and sauces well.
How To Use
Yaki tofu is usually sold packed in water like regular tofu. Once you open the package, drain the water and add to your cooking.
