· Drain the tofu, cut into thick slices or cubes and soak in hot, salty water for 15 minutes. This works better than a marinade at penetrating the tofu to flavour it.
· Drain the salt-water then lay the pieces flat between two tea towels and place a heavy object over it to press the moisture out. The dryer it is, the better it browns.
