Breaded tofu "fish" sticks

Looking for a homemade vegan fish substitute? Look no further!

Make fishy-flavored vegetarian "fish sticks" using tofu and seaweed flakes. These easy baked or fried vegan tofu mock-fish sticks are low in fat if you bake them, and will be a hit with the kids. Serve with a vegan tartar sauce, ketchup, or even ranch dressing or barbecue sauce.

  • 2 blocks firm or extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp crumbled nori seaweed
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice tofu into strips and coat well with flour.

In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk together the soy milk, soy sauce and lemon juice. In a separate bowl or pie plate, combine bread crumbs, nori and lemon pepper.

Carefully dip floured tofu in soy milk mixture, then coat well in bread crumbs.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning over once, until crispy and golden brown. Or, pan fry on both sides in a bit of oil.

Serve with a vegan tartar sauce.

I just whipped this up today (half a batch, as two full blocks was a bit much for me) and am heartily impressed. It was easy, delicious and with plenty of protein it's a recipe that filled me up. I noshed on mine with cocktail sauce (my favorite) which only added to the fishy-feeling the nori gave. Definitely recommend!
