Marinading fried tofu? Yay?/Nay?

Hello Chowhound! (My first post!)

So I've been veg for seven years, but am still totally afraid of cooking tofu. I've recently discovered and have fallen in love with Hodo Soy (the brand) Tofu Nuggets. It seems they work best if they are stir fried in a mostly dry pan, with maybe a few vegetables and a bit of oil. If I recall correctly, when I have tried to simmer them in a sauce, they became all big and puffy! (Is that even possible? Did I dream that?)

Anyway, so the question is: Can I marinade pre-fried tofu to use in a stir-fry? If so, is there anything else I should do to ensure the texture is reasonably desirable? For that matter, any recommendations on cooking pre-fried tofu would be graciously appreciated. Thanks!

tldr: Can I marinade pre-fried tofu?
