  • 1 block extra-firm tofu

  • 1/2 Cup hoisin sauce

  • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce

  • 3 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • 1 Teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 Clove garlic, minced

  • 1 green onions, thinly sliced, both white and green parts, divided

  • Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

  • 1 green onions, thinly sliced, both white and green parts

    Prepare the tofu. Start by pressing the tofu to remove as much liquid as possible. Place the tofu between two cutting boards and weigh the top down with a couple of heavy cans. The liquid will be pooling around the tofu. Let it sit for 1-2 hours, periodically tipping the liquid into the sink. This will improve the texture and make it more absorbent for the marinade.

    Make the marinade. In a shallow dish, add the hoisin, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, sesame oil, garlic, and one thinly sliced green onion. Mix well to combine.

    • 1/2 Cup hoisin sauce

    • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce

    • 3 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

    • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice

    • 1 Teaspoon sesame oil

    • 1 Clove garlic, minced

    • 1 green onions, thinly sliced, both white and green parts, divided

    Using a sharp knife on a cutting board, slice the tofu into 1-inch-thick cubes for skewers or larger strips, if desired. Place the tofu into the dish with the marinade. Toss to coat and let sit for 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate overnight, occasionally spooning the marinade over the tofu.

    Place the skewers directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook for about 20 minutes, rotating the skewers every 5 minutes and brushing with the marinade. Tofu should be warmed through and have nice grill marks.
