Delicious Grilled Tarako and Mayonnaise On Tofu

Delicious Grilled Tarako and Mayonnaise On Tofu

I put a generous amount of mixed tarako - salt cured pollack or cod roe - and mayonnaise on top of soft silken tofu and then toasted it. The creamy soft tofu and the tarako-mayonnaise are a great match.

Ingredients: 2 servings (or 1 large serving)

Tofu (silken)
Tarako (salt-cured pollack or cod roe)
1 small (20 g)
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Chopped green onion
to taste


1. Cut the tofu into 1 to 1.5 cm thick slices, blot off any excess surface moisture with kitchen paper towels (no need to press out the water), and place on a sheet of aluminum foil. Scrape out the tarako eggs from the membrane.
2. Mix together the tarako, mayonnaise and soy sauce to make tarako-mayonnaise, mound on top of the tofu from Step 1, and cook in a toaster oven for 5 to 6 minutes. (Don't close up the foil!)
3. When it's become a little browned on top, it's done. Place a plate, foil and all, and sprinkle on top with the chopped green onion.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love tarako-mayonnaise sauce, so I put it on top of tofu.
