These Vegan Fish Sticks are so unbelievably divine! They are beer-battered, have an amazing texture and are served with a homemade vegan tartar sauce!
OKAY. I never thought I would see the day that I would be making VEGAN fish and chips for you guys! Honestly, it is insane to me the amount of choices that we have available!! These vegan fish sticks are paired perfectly with my favourite way to oven chips/fries, and will definitely satisfy that craving. I didn’t even realise I was having a craving until my first bite. Immediately satisfied.
When I stopped eating meat, seafood was harder for me to give up. I went pescatarian for about a week, before fully deciding to go vegetarian. Since going vegan, it’s as if this whole new world has opened up for me. That whole new world includes these vegan fish sticks.
Let me tell you – seasoning is KEY here. I took all the fishy and salty seasonings I had – crushed nori and old bay seasoning – and mixed with them the most magical ingredient I’ve discovered this year – hearts of palm.
Fun fact: hearts of palm is a vegetable harvested from the core of a palm tree. It’s hard to describe but their texture is very much like artichokes. They work so well here because of their colour, their texture, and their flakiness. Yup, they get kind of flaky like fish once pulsed. For this, hearts of palm make the best texture for vegan fish sticks. That with all the flavours make the perfect base for fish sticks. You need to try these. They’re completely flavourless by the way, so absorb the flavour that you give it (kind of like tofu).
After that, I battered them in my beer batter recipe that I used for when I used to eat fish. The result is a crispy, crunchy, batter and an inside that taste like fish! ON top of top, I made you a vegan tartar sauce to dip these in, and to have alongside some delicious chips/fries.
I feel nice and extra eating these. Gavin and I danced around the kitchen snacking on the first pieces, in disbelief at how delicious they were. Take my advice – make these soon. Of course, serve it with some beer (or sparkling water if ya fancy). Enjoy friends! Also, whip up some for me too. I’m coming over.
