Vegan Fish Fingers

Who used to love fish fingers when they were little? This is a plant based version of the old classic that you used to know and love. So we created these Vegan Fish Fingers out of tofu which taste even better!

Vegan Fish Fingers

We used our Air Fryer for this recipe – it’s such a handy thing to have. Don’t worry if you don’t have one though, because you can shallow fry these or bake them.

I’m using aquafaba again for this recipe! We’ve used it in a few of our recipes now, including our Cajun Spiced Tofu, Coconut and Raspberry Slice and our Meringue Stack with Banana Cream.

I have also used a vegan fish sauce to give it a more fishy flavour. I’ve added that to the chickpea brine. If you don’t have fish sauce, try a little combo of lime juice and tamari/soy sauce. That is a good subsitute for fish sauce.

These would go perfectly with our Turmeric Chips, or even a nice salad – try out our Atlantis salad, or a Zucchini Noodle Salad! Or make some ‘Fish’ Tacos with it! So many delicious options!
