Preparation / Directions:
Tofu, once pressed, grills beautifully. Joanie pressed and marinated the tofu ahead of time; we grilled it on a portable hibachi.
Slice the block of tofu in half, then slice each half into four thick slabs. Place a double layer of paper towels on a cutting board set over the sink. Arrange tofu in one layer on the cutting board, then top with a clean dishtowel. Place a second board on top, then a 4 to 5 pound weight, such as a thick phone book or heavy pot. Let press 20 minutes.
Uncover tofu and place in one layer in a shallow baking dish. Drizzle with orange juice and soy sauce. Marinate at room temperature 20 minutes.
Grill over hot coals until lightly browned, turning once. Serve with Cold and Spicy Noodles.
