Let’s talk vegan sandwiches!
If there is a second food concept besides fish tacos that I was completely enamored with prior to focusing on plant based foods..It was fish and chips!
However, even though the landscape for vegan food products has evolved, the faux fish department remains to be lacking and that goes even for vegan food establishments. The only vegan fish you can find is the store bought frozen variety and that’s packed with so many ingredients that you can easily skip.
So The great thing about a vegan fish sandwich, is that you can easily make it yourself and bonus, it’s so easy!
I know what you’re thinking, tofu? How could it replicate fish? Trust me, when you freeze and thaw the tofu you get a more protein like texture. What about the flavor? By simply marinating the tofu in soy and seaweed, you can derive a seafood like flavor!
What I love about this dish is, everything! Its tofu based making it accessible, affordable, has multiple textures (crispy from the tofu, crunchy from the cabbage), tart from the malt vinegar and tartar sauce, perfect for any season, can be made into sticks, looks just like the real deal, has a slight hint of beer and simply packs tons of flavor!
Why this recipe is great:
Tartar sauce is insanely good!
Non vegan approved
Great aesthetic appeal
Perf for anytime of the year!
Has a real fish flavor!
