The spicy mango salsa paired with the teriyaki tofu and lime dressing is a magical combination that transports you to Hawaii. These fresh and sweet flavors are so addictive and great for a potential luau.

Preparation

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the pineapple juice, Teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger.
  2. Add in your tofu to the sauce. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Mix in all your ingredients for the mango salsa and refrigerate until it is time to serve. The flavor will continue to develop, and I would even say that the next day is even better!
  4. Next, prepare your lime dressing and refrigerate.
  5. Fry up your tofu to brown on both sides, approximately 5 minutes each side.
  6. In a dry pan, heat your tortillas 30 seconds on each side and cover with a towel until ready to serve.
  7. To assemble, take your tortilla and place your fried tofu in the center. Put a small amount of purple cabbage and then the mango salsa. Drizzle a little lime dressing and sprinkle some more coriander. Enjoy!
