Ingredients

Lemon Ginger Tofu

Marinade

  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons rapeseed oil
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated root ginger
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chilli-garlic sauce, such as Sriracha

Salad

  • 225 g (7½ oz) carrot, coarsely grated
  • 65 g (2½ oz) cashews, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablespoons very finely chopped spring onions, white and light green parts
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander or flat leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 packages (425g/14 oz each) extra-firm tofu (not silken-style)

Instructions

    In the kitchen:

  • 01 Whisk the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Remove the blocks of tofu from their containers, leaving the liquid behind. Cut each block lengthways into 4 slices, each about 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a rimmed platter or in an ovenproof dish.
  • 02 Pour the marinade over the tofu slices and brush the marinade on all sides. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, turning the slices over once or twice.
  • 03 Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Set aside at room temperature.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01 Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over a high heat. Brush the cooking grates clean. Lay a large sheet of aluminium foil, about 40 by 30 cm (16 by 12 inches), directly on the cooking grate. 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 for 6 to 8 minutes, with the lid closed as much as possible but turning once and brushing occasionally with some of the reserved marinade, until both sides are nicely caramelized and the slices are warmed. Using a spatula or fish slice, transfer the slices of tofu to serving plates. Stack the salad on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
