Drain tofu, reserving marinade. Put the tofu on a lightly oiled baking sheet, in a single layer and roast in the top part of the oven for 25-30 minutes, until they have browned well and are fairly crisp.
Meanwhile, make the satay sauce. Put the peanut butter into a small pan with the reserved marinade and water and heat gently, stirring, until smooth. Stir in the creamed coconut, cut into small pieces. Season with salt.
