    Miheehee's Note:

    I'm trying to find more ways to barbeque tofu instead of meat. This recipe, adapted from, has the tropical taste I was after.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Press tofu well and slice into 8 thick slabs.
    2. 2
      Whisk together remaining ingredients.
    3. 3
      Coat tofu in marinade.
    4. 4
      Marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours, and up to overnight.
    5. 5
      Tofu tends to stick to grills, so prepare your barbecue with a non-stick cooking spray or by rubbing it with oil.
    6. 6
      Grill over a pre-heated grill for 6-7 minutes on each side, until browned, brushing occasionally with extra marinade.

      The first time I make any dish, I only make enough for myself because I want to see where I can improve before I share it with my friends and family. This time, I regretted that decision-- the finished product was way too good to be experiencing alone. <br/><br/>I did deviate slightly from the original recipe-- I subbed 1/8 cup cider vinegar for some of the lime juice, and I added a couple dashes of smoked paprika to the marinade. I also added a couple spritzes of Bragg's Liquid Aminos, but could have just gone a bit heavier on the salt. I kept the honey, but you could easily make this vegan by substituting agave or brown sugar, maybe even pineapple juice since the marinade as suggested is on the thick side. <br/><br/>I knew I was going to be pan-frying the tofu rather than grilling, so I cut smaller pieces than the recipe suggests. I cooked it for about 15 minutes on medium-high heat in a non-stick pan (didn't add any oil beyond what's in the recipe) with some diced red onion, bell pepper and a few chunks of pineapple. I served it with pineapple fried rice and a cucumber-avocado salad.
