EASY VEGAN FRIED FISH – I’ve been making vegan fried fish virtually every day for the past week. It’s THAT excellent! It’s really popular, and I’m sure you will like it too.
Have it for dinner, lunch, or breakfast…like I did 🙂
— 2 cans of banana blossoms in water
— 1 cup of fish fry mix—pre-seasoned
— ½ cup of chickpea flour
— 1 tbsp of plant-based milk
— Oil for frying
— ½ tbsp kelp granules
— ¼ cup of crushed seaweed
— ½ tbsp Old Bay or creole seasoning
Tartar Sauce :
— ½ cup of vegan mayo
— 3 tbsps of sweet relish
— 1 tsp lemon juice
— ½ tsp salt
Drain canned banana blossoms and add to a bowl. Rinse thoroughly and squeeze to remove excess water.
Add in kelp granules, crushed seaweed, 1 tbsp plant milk, and Old Bay seasoning. Mix well and set in a refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
When ready to cook, add oil to a frying dish and turn to medium heat
In a second bowl, use a whisk to combine the pre-seasoned fish fry mix and chickpea flour.
Add ¼ cup of the combined fish fry and chickpea mix to the marinated banana blossoms and mix well using your hands.
Grab a handful of the banana blossom mix and form into the shape of your choice (fish stick, nuggets, or a filet). Add it to the bowl of fish fry and chickpea flour and press to coat on both sides. Before frying, gently shake off excess flour.
Add the vegan fish to the oil and fry for 2 minutes, or until brown. The vegan fish will begin to float once ready to be removed.
Place the vegan fish on a cooling rack.
Serve with hot sauce or vegan tartar sauce.

Combine all ingredients using a spoon or fork and refrigerate until ready to use.
