Cooking Directions

  • In a small food processor, combine all ingredients for the marinade. Blend, scraping the sides down every so often, until a slightly chunky paste forms. Set aside.
  • Cut the tofu in half, and then cut each half into 3 slices, each about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Place the tofu in a large dish and pour the marinade over top. Turn the tofu over and rub the marinade on top to make sure both sides get evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours - overnight.
  • Preheat your grill to high heat for 10 minutes. Once hot, scrape the grill down really clean and rub it generously with olive oil.
  • Scrape any excess chunks of marinade off the tofu, and place the slabs on the outside edges of the grill, where the heat is indirect and turn the grill down to low. Close the lid and cook until the outside of the tofu is lightly crispy and has nice grill marks, about 10-13 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 10-13 minutes.
  • While the tofu cooks, combine the chopped pineapple, red onion, lime juice and cilantro in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Once the tofu is cooked rub the reserved excess marinade on each slab and finely chop into small cubes.
  • Spoon the tofu into the lettuce leaves, top with salsa.
