Caribbean Tofu Skewers

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Cut pineapple into 1-inch cubes; cover and chill until needed. Place tofu in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl combine reserved pineapple juice, lime juice, olive oil, jerk seasoning, salt, and garlic. Pour over tofu. Seal bag; turn to coat tofu. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Drain tofu, reserving marinade. On eight 12-inch skewers,* alternately thread tofu, pineapple chunks, onion wedges, and sweet pepper. Lightly coat assembled skewers with cooking spray.
  3. For a charcoal grill, place tofu skewers on the rack of the uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill about 8 minutes or until sweet peppers are crisp tender, turning to brown tofu evenly and brushing occasionally with marinade. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place tofu skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
