Hiyayakko with Maui Lavender Ponzu

This version of hiyayakko or Japanese cold silken tofu, was a staple at Poi Dog’s summer parties as a refreshing start to a meal. The longer the tofu sits in the Maui Lavender Ponzu, the more it will be permeated by the sauce’s citrusy, flowery flavors. There is a significant amount of ginger in the ponzu, but if you like things super gingery, by all means please add more grated ginger! Serve as soon as the katsuobushi lands on the tofu.
