  • 1 block tofu
  • 1/2 pineapple
  • chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Jamaican Jerk Marinade check out ours
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil for grill pan
  • Glaze
  • 1 Cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • pinch of red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • Pinch salt
  1. For the glaze:
  2. Put all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and put on medium heat. Cook until the glaze is slightly thickened. Work carefully because the glaze will be sticky and very hot. Turn off heat and set aside.
  3. Grill tofu and pineapple:
  4. Slice the tofu widthwise into 6-7 thick slabs. Place the sliced of tofu between sheets of paper towel (as shown above) onto a plate and place another plate on top and a can on top of it all. Trust me this will work wonders. Press the tofu for 30 minutes, then drain off and discard the paper towel.
  5. Brush the tofu with the Jerk marinade. Cover the plate with plastic wrap, and marinate tofu in the refrigerator for 1 hour or I recommend doing it overnight.
  6. Heat grill-pan over medium heat and oil pan. Grill the tofu and pineapple until almost blackened in spots, brushing occasionally with the extra marinade, about 15 minutes.
  7. To serve:
  8. place tofu and pineapple on plate sprinkle with cilantro and pour on the glaze. Enjoy!!!
