Learn how to make delicious and healthy vegan fish at home with this easy recipe. Made with lentil tofu, this fish is gluten-free, soy-free, and packed with protein.

Before I became a vegan, I loved seafood, shrimp, and crab. I even remember I bought a baby shark, and I was happy to eat that shark. I am really sorry for that time because of my lack of knowledge. From the smell of fish, I enjoyed the shrimp. But since I became a vegan, I didn’t even look for seafood alternatives because I had accepted the vegan lifestyle. I was very happy with my choice, I wish I had come to this knowledge sooner.
When I searched on vegan sites, I found out that there are fish substitutes that are very simple and healthy. So, I decided to create my own recipe with some changes and put it on my page so that you can use this recipe.

Foods High in Omega 3 for Vegetarians and Vegans

On the path of veganism, I was often asked why you don’t eat fish, so where do you get your omega-3 from?
Lentils are a good source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is an omega-3 fatty acid that the body can convert into other forms of omega-3. Omega-3 fatty acids can help lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and protect against heart disease.
I get omega-3 through natural foods that are rich in ALA, include such as :

  • Chia seeds
  • Flaxseeds
  • Walnuts
  • Hemp seeds
  • Soybeans
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Edamame

Foods High in Omega 3 for Vegetarians and Vegans

Let’s go to an attractive vegan fish recipe that is mostly made with red lentil tofu. The color of red lentils is similar to salmon, and it is very delicious. But I made this vegan fish with green lentil tofu, and because I used smoky spices inside this tofu, This recipe is very similar to smoked fish. I am sure anyone trying this vegan fish will love it. I have already taught the tofu lentil recipe; click on the link.

If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious vegan fish recipe, I highly recommend this one. It’s perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Tips and tricks:

  • Use aromatic vegetables to flavor the tofu. This will give the vegan fish a more authentic flavor. Some good options include onions, garlic, ginger, and herbs like dill, parsley, and cilantro.
  • One of the main points of making vegan fish is to flavor the tofu, that is, flavor the tofu with fresh and aromatic vegetables If you use a lot of aromatic spices to flavor the tofu from the beginning, there is no need to marinate it. Just dip the tofu in breadcrumbs and fry it.
  • You can use any type of tofu you like, but firm or extra-firm tofu will work best for this recipe. Common choices for vegan fish substitutes include tofu and mushroom tempeh.
  • Shape the tofu into fish-like shapes. This is optional, but it will make the vegan fish look more like the real thing. You can use a knife or a cookie cutter to cut the tofu into fillets or steaks.
  • If you don’t have all of the spices listed, you can use a pre-made vegan fish seasoning blend.
  • To make the vegan fish even more crispy, you can air fry it instead of frying it in oil.
  • Coat the tofu in breadcrumbs to make it crispy. This is essential for getting a good texture. You can use regular breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs for a crispier result.
  • Use nori sheets or smoked spices to add a fishy flavor. Nori sheets are a traditional ingredient in sushi, but they can also be used to add a fishy flavor to vegan fish. If you don’t have nori sheets, you can use smoked spices instead.
