Barbecued Asian Tofu
Recipe: Barbecued Asian Tofu

Ingredients

  • 1 block (15 ounces) firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice, plus lime wedges (2 limes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon Chili Paste with Garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger root

Instructions

  1. Cut tofu into 4 half-inch-thick slices, then cut slices in half to yield 8 pieces. Drain on clean cloth or paper towels, weighted down if possible, to extract as much moisture as possible.
  2. Whisk together hoisin sauce, and place in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Place the tofu in the dish and spoon some of the marinade on top of the tofu. Allow the tofu to marinate at least 2 hours and up to 48, turning once or spooning more marinade over the top.
  3. Prepare charcoal or gas grill to medium heat. Wipe excess marinade from tofu. Place tofu on well-oiled grill grates, and grill about 15 minutes on each side, depending on heat of fire. Serve with lime wedges.

Marinating Time: 24 hours

Active Time: 15 minutes

Grill Time: 30 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 2-3
