Made this exactly as the recipe indicted and was very disappointed. It was spicy, but dry. It really needs a sauce. We tried dipping it in a honey ginger BBQ sauce.

I played around with this and added some teriyaki sauce--the amount of marinade didn't really cover the tofu, so I also added more lime and soy sauce. It turned out relatively well, but a bit too salty--probably all that teriyaki and soy sauce I added. I wonder if tripling the lime juice would be best. Not bad, for a tofu recipe--it does add flavor to the tofu! thanks for the recipe.
