AT A GLANCE
Hiyayakko, silken tofu served cold with various toppings, is a classic izakaya dish. It's very refreshing, and only gets better as the weather gets warmer.
|01||Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil and blanch ginger to soften the flavour a little (10 seconds). Drain and set aside.|
|02||For soy sesame dressing, stir ingredients in a small bowl, season with finely ground white pepper and set aside.|
|03||Carefully turn tofu out of its container (this is easiest if you break the suction of the container by pulling the container’s sides a little. If it does break, cut the tofu into large pieces) onto a serving plate. Top with ginger, radish and bonito flakes, drizzle with soy sesame dressing and serve cold.|
