    ellie_'s Note:

    This was delicious and dh didn't even complain about the tofu -- not only that he loved it and had second and third helpings -- cooked this way and combined in this delish salad tofu takes on a different role in the salad. By the way as I was afraid that the shrimp would fall through the grill grates, I left the shrimp in a metal disposable pie dish and cooked it on the grill that way - the shrimp was delish and spicy!
