This jerk tofu with mango-lime salsa is giving us tropical sunshine in a bowl, no matter when or where we cook it. The recipe calls for store-bought jerk seasoning, but you can also easily make your own blend and dial in the flavors and spice level to your taste.

Jerk Tofu with Mango Lime Salsa

30 min


  • 4 limes, juiced, divided
  • 2 tbsp jerk seasoning such as Primal Palate Organic Spices Jerk Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 14-oz pkgs organic extra-firm tofu, each cut into 8 planks, pressed with paper towel to remove liquid
  • 2 mangos, peeled, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted


  1. In a large bowl, combine one-half of the lime juice with jerk seasoning, ginger and garlic. Add tofu; gently turn to coat. Set aside. (Tip: For more intense flavor, marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes or longer.)
  2. Prepare salsa: In a large bowl, toss together mango, cilantro and remaining one-half of lime juice. Season with salt, to taste. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Working in batches, add tofu and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flipping once, until golden brown. Serve tofu with mango salsa and top with almonds and coconut.
