Thai Tofu Satay
1 block tofu-firm type
1 bottle Harpo's Thai dressing
Japanese cucumbers - thinly sliced
The secret is to drain the tofu of as much moisture as possible. Do this by:
- Placing the tofu in a tofu strainer in the refrigerator overnight,
- placing the tofu on several layers or paper towels to absorb the moisture, or
- gently pressing the tofu between several thicknesses of paper towels ( do this if you are in a hurry). Repeat until tofu is reasonably dry.
Now cut tofu into even slices about 1/2 inch thick and into 2" X 3" rectangles.
Skewer each slice of tofu with 2 bamboo skewers about 1" apart at the short end making sure the the point comes out at the top. This will help stabalize the tofu when grilling.
Place skewered tofu in a flat pan alternating tofu placement in 1 layer only. Pour Thai dressing over tofu making sure the dressing coats underneath the slices as well. You don't need to to pour the whole bottle. Just make sure the slices are nicely coated but not "drowned".
Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).
Place tofu skewers on grill and grill until tofu is a nice brown....you may brush tofu with extra dressing if you desire.
Slice cucumbers in rounds about 1/8" thick. Serve along side grilled tofu. The cool crunch of the cukes with the soft spice of the tofu is a winning combination.
Our thanks to Luena L. of Honolulu for this tasty recipe!
