Cut the tofu block into 1.5cm (1/2 inch) thick rectangular/square pieces, depending on the shape of your tofu. Pat dry with a paper towel.

Prepare the sauce by mixing all ingredients together.

Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick pan, add the tofu pieces very carefully (don't break) and sear over medium high heat until lightly golden brown, about 3 minutes each side.

Scoop the sauce over the tofu pieces. Slightly tilt a side of the tofu pieces to get the sauce under them. Simmer for about 3 minutes over medium to medium low heat. Flip them, and simmer for another minute or so, scoop the sauce with spoon over the tofu pieces. Serve warm or cold with a bowl of rice.
