The Best Vegan Seafood Alternatives
Going plant-based but still craving a nostalgic fish finger sandwich? We understand — so it’s a good thing there are lots of vegan seafood alternatives out there for you to choose from. Read on for our top picks.
For a classic fish fingers affair, these Quorn Fishless Fingers will do the trick. Using Quorn’s signature mycoprotein as the ‘fish’ and coated in breadcrumbs, it tastes just like the real thing.
If you’re missing the takeaway classic, these no prawn toasts are a must have for your next fakeaway. Jackfruit and king oyster mushrooms are sandwiched between white bread and topped with sesame seeds and fried for a crispy, crunchy prawn toast that’s suitable for vegans and a tasty starter.
Vivera’s Fish Fillets are made from wheat protein and make a great patty for burgers and sandwiches, as well as a nice accompaniment to salads. It’s also fortified with vitamin B12 and iron which is definitely a bonus.
These vegetarian fish goujons from Linda McCartney are actually also suitable for vegans and have been approved by the Vegan Society. Made from soya and meat protein, the goujon is coated in a delicious lemon and parsley crispy breadcrumb, making it a must-have in the freezer.
Tempura prawns are the party food many love, and you can keep the good times going with this delicious no prawn tempura selection from Plant Pioneers. Made with a mix of jackfruit and oyster mushrooms, the texture of prawns is achieved and made amazingly plant-based.
