Oh, my friends. My friends! (Especially you, Jenna and Ally!) I’ve been sitting on this recipe long enough. Some of you have been nagging me to post it for more than a year. Behold the two-step teriyaki: Step 1, marinate. Step 2, bake. ‘Tis all. I’ve done this with salmon (which I maintain is the absolute best vehicle for this homemade sauce), but you can do it with tofu, chicken, or presumably anything else. I think I originally got the idea for this from my friend Gill, who got it from her dad. Thanks, Gill and Gill’s dad!

A little garlic never hurt anyone.
Lookin’ good out of the oven!
Goes really well with coconut rice and sauteed veggies.
When I need some protein and I’m not willing to do much more than open a package of said protein, I reach for the tamari (that’s gluten-free soy sauce, for those who are unfamiliar) and make this superfast marinated treat.
Slice the tofu like so
Give it a quick bath in your superfast marinade
Place the tofu squares on a foiled baking sheet
