veg fish fingers for the first time. They were tasty but it made me curious to try other faux fish finger recipes. Recently I tried a very different recipe.
The recipe was created to be similar to Redwoods fish fingers. I have never tried them and now would do so out of curiosity if I ever came across them. (NB Online Redwoods fish fingers look far more like fish fingers than these.)
a variation of the classic PPK sausage recipe before but it was too much gluten for me. The 'fish fingers' recipe has more variety of flours and did not require steaming. The recipe I was following said to bake them but it was a hot day so I fried them.
tofu-cashew mayonnaise but lacked the ingredients. Instead I used some avocado to make this green goddess salad dressing. It worked really well with the fish fingers.
I am sending this recipe to Ricki Heller's Wellness Weekends a weekly collection of healthy recipes from bloggers.

Vegan fish fingers
Adapted from broadbean at the Vegetarian and Vegan Society of Queensland forum
Serves about 3
1 cup soya flour
1/2 cup maize (corn) meal
1/2 cup gluten flour
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp seaweed (ground to powder) - I used arame
1 tsp dulse (optional)
1 tsp vegan stock powder
1 tsp onion granules
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp xanthum gum
milk and breadcrumbs, for coating
oil, for frying
Mix all ingredients (except milk, breadcrumbs and oil) into a dough. Knead for a few minutes until gluten strings appear. If it is a bit dry (mine was) add a teaspoon or two of water. Heat oil in a non stick, heavy bottom frypan and fry the fish fingers until golden brown all over. (Alternatively they can be oven baked.) Eat warm.
