Jerk Barbeque Tofu

I made this for the first time today, and it is excellent with the Cajun Rice & Beans with Mango Salsa dish posted yesterday (if I knew how to link you directly to it here, I would. Tips are always welcome!). It also adds a bit more protein to that dish, which is helpful for keeping you feeling full.

Approximate preparation time: 15 minutes

1-2 Tbsp. vegetable or olive oil
1 container tofu, cubed
1-2 tsp. salt
3-4 Tbsp. Jerk Barbeque sauce (I used one by
Walkerswood, which can be found in caribbean food stores)

Pour the veggie oil into a saucepan and place over high heat for a minute or so to heat. Dump the tofu into the saucepan and add the salt to taste. Be careful that the oil doesn't splatter and burn you; don't worry, it'll calm down after a few seconds. Pan-fry for several minutes (maybe 6-8?), until the tofu becomes light brownish. Be sure to move it around a bit so that it doesn't burn. Add the barbeque sauce and continue saute-ing until it is cooked through (about another 2 minutes).
