Slice the tofu into eight equal size pieces and drain on paper towels while you prepare the marinade. Mix together the mirin, shoyu and ginger juice. Place the tofu slices in a shallow bowl and pour the marinade over. Marinate for 10 minutes, then turn the slices over and marinate the other side for 10 minutes. Remove the tofu and allow to drain for a few seconds. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and pan fry the tofu on one side for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Flip the slices over and fry for another 2 minutes or until golden. Remove, place on a serving plate and garnish with green onions.
Yield: 8 slices, 2 slices per person.
Note: although the sodium content is high with any food that is marinated in teriyaki sauce, the amount of sodium shown per serving in this recipe is actually less because the tofu does not absorb most of the marinade. The remaining marinade can be reserved and reused or discarded.
