SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was very good.  I minced 3 green onions and rolled the pasty tofu around in that and toasted sesame seeds before baking. 

Following advice from above I froze my tofu ahead of time and let it marinate for a few hours before baking. The flavor really penetrated the tofu.

This is really good!  The only suggestions I would make is to use tofu that has been frozen/thawed for a more "meaty" texture and to let the tofu marinade for a while so it can really absorb the flavors.  It does come out a bit salty, but in a good way.

This is pretty good. I used rice wine vinegar instead of mirin, added a pinch of sugar, and didn't measure. I used a big block of tofu, so my marinade turned out a bit salty. I baked at about 425.
