This was a fantastic and simple recipe. I will definitely be making it again. The marinade would probably also make a great salad dressing.

Great recipe for a quick app. We substituted the parsley with cilantro because it's what we had in the house and it turned out wonderful. Definitely a winner served with chutney.

Good, easy recipe and I'm not usually a fan of tofu. Even my kids (3 y-o and 18 month-old) liked it. To be fair, I ran out of soy sauce so the proportions were a little off. Next time I'll marinate it longer. Served with sushi soy sauce and a mixed salad with PC Soy and Ginger dressing.

Very flavourful! I wouldn't change a thing. Will make again for sure to go with pretty much any asian themed dinner.

I added a bit more low sodium soy sauce to the bottom of the pan to make sure the bottom of the tofu soaked as well. Delicious!
