Directions

  1. In a small skillet over medium-low heat, toast pine nuts, stirring constantly, until golden and fragrant (~2 minutes). Transfer to a bowl to cool.
  2. In a small bowl, mix paprika, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
  3. Drain tofu and pat dry with paper towels. Cut crosswise into eight 1/2-inch thick slices.
  4. Dredge the tofu liberally with the spice mixture, coating all sides.
  5. In a small bowl, mix boiling water, lemon juice and honey.
  6. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Swirl to coat the bottom.
  7. Add tofu and cook on one side until brown and crusty (~4 minutes). Flip and cook the other side (~3 minutes).
  8. Add honey mixture to the pan and quickly shake to coat the tofu. It will BUBBLE UP and EVAPORATE VERY QUICKLY.
  9. Serve immediately, sprinkled with toasted pine nuts.
