Press the tofu. Make the marinade while it is pressing.
[I press mine by stacking things in this order: (from counter up) a plate, the tofu, a clean cutting board, and a full basket of fruit. Then I wait, draining the juices as the plate fills up. I also make sure the stack doesn’t lean. (For this recipe, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PRESS YOUR TOFU AND DO IT CORRECTLY. If you do not press it you will have soggy bacon. If the pressure is not uniform the tofu will split and fall apart, making it easy to overcook.)]
