1 pack extra firm tofu, drained of excess liquid
¼ cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
3 garlic cloves, grated
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 tablespoons peanut oil
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
¼ cup green onions, chopped
Place the drained tofu on a plate lined with several paper towels. Cover tofu with several more paper towels and top with a heavy pan or something heavy. Let sit for 30 minutes to drain excess liquid.
Mix the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, oil, 1 teaspoon salt and red pepper flakes in a large bowl and keep aside.
Cut tofu into bit sized squares and toss in the bowl with the sauce. Marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat a heavy pan with peanut oil. Once really hot, add tofu and sear on all sides- about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Remove from heat and sprinkle sesame seeds and green onion. Serve with rice.
