the Ingredients

20151023095345 Wtg Sides 18


  • 60 milliliters fresh lemon juice
  • 60 milliliters canola oil
  • 60 milliliters soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peeled, grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili-garlic sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 2 packages (each 400 grams) extra-firm tofu (not silken style)


  • 2 cups coarsely grated carrots
  • 70 grams roughly chopped cashews
  • ⅓ cup minced scallions (white and light green parts only)
  • 8 grams finely chopped fresh cilantro or Italian parsley leaves
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Special Equipment

  • box grater with 6-millimeter holes


  • In a medium bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Remove the blocks of tofu from their containers, leaving the liquid behind. Cut each block lengthwise into four slices, each about 2.5 centimeters thick. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a rimmed platter or in a glass baking dish.
  • Pour the marinade over the tofu slices and brush the marinade on all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, turning the slices over once or twice.
  • In a large bowl combine the salad ingredients and mix well. Set aside at room temperature.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (230° to 290°C).
  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Lay a large sheet of aluminum foil, about 30.5 by 40.5 centimeters, directly on the cooking grates. Lift the tofu slices from the platter and arrange them in a single layer on the foil, reserving the marinade for glazing. Grill the tofu over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until both sides are nicely caramelized and the slices are warm, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once and brushing occasionally with some of the reserved marinade. Using a spatula, transfer the slices of tofu to serving plates. Stack the salad on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
