Vegan Fish & Chips

One grey late-winter day, you come back from a long day of work, just wanna sit in front of the TV, watch some football, have a cold beer and something to munch on. Fried food always go good on these settings. This carelessness, shutting down your brains to clog your arteries, and flushing it off with some light bubbly booze.

Unlike Britons, I don’t like led in my fish so I won’t serve it in a newspaper, in the traditional way, and unlike everyone, I’d also won’t care for fish in my fish, so… I was looking for some soft and relatively taste-neutral form of tofu to play with.

The fish:

150 g of soft, taste-neutral tofu

2 spoons of wakame seaweed, ground to powder

1 spoon sea salt

– mix all and leave in the fridge overnight

The batter:

1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

100 ml beer

salt, pepper, dried garlic, pinch of mustard

– mix all well. you can play with the beer-flour to your liking

The Fries:

Potatoes. I like my fries wide. Soaked in ice water and dried. Fried once in medium-high heat, colled, and then again in very high heat.

The sauce:

1/4 cup soy milk

1/2 cup oil

1/2 tsp mustard

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

pinch of salt

finely diced gherkins

– blend all (besides the gherkins) well, until solid. Add them last.

– Batter and fry the fish right after you finish with the fries. Serve together. Drink beer and enjoy.

  1. Haha, yeah, I was going to say the same thing! I’m in my 40s and I think I can remember eating chips out of newspaper as a kid maybe once or twice, but don’t think I’ve seen that as an adult. Later in my childhood manufactured chip cones came pre-printed with fake newspaper headings (about fish and chips!) πŸ™‚
