Asian Tofu Skewers -

These are really yummy skewers for the bbq! You will notice that I always precook the tofu in the marinade prior to barbecuing; this is the best way to get the tofu to absorb the flavours before getting beautiful grill marks. The precooking can be done a couple of days before if you like, just refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to skewer.
