Thumbs up for the tofu recipe, but we did press the tofu to ensure it sucked up the marinade and we marinated for a couple hours. One family member is a "taster" with respect to papaya and cilantro so we substituted a salsa with mango, red pepper, red onion, avocado, jalapeno, and a T each of sugar, olive oil and cider vinegar. We'll make this again.
