    Annisette's Note:

    Be sure to use extra firm tofu and press out as much of the water as you can. To prevent sticking, give the tofu slices and the grill rack a generous coat of nonstick cooking spray. Cooking time includes marinading the tofu for 4 hours. This is from VT May/June 2006.

      Delicious! I marinated overnight and the tofu really soaked up the flavors. I used my stovetop cast iron grill pan and it worked perfectly. We will be having this again.

      Awesome. Of course I made adjustments based on what I had on hand. I used the juice of 1 lime plus 1/4 cup of OJ, substituted agave for the maple syrup, and used sweet chili sauce instead of chili paste. I also have a vacuum sealer so I only had to marinate 45 minutes using the vacuum sealer. I reserved the marinade after removing the tofu and basted the tofu while it grilled. Fantastic!!

      Great tasting marinade. The prevalent taste was lime, but the chili paste also came around. I hate using too much maple syrup (it's super expensive!) so I tried to use as little as possible to make sure the tofu was totally covered (keeping ratio's of the other ingredients in mind).
