meals / snacks / tasty trash

this is less of a recipe and more of a product review i suppose.

so fake seafood: pretty terrible. like really really godawful. but i’d heard people talk about these “fish” fillets and that they weren’t disgusting so we decided to try them.

I think they’re called Sophie’s, i got them at karmavore.

To go with it we made chips, tartar sauce and served it with lemon wedges, slaw and a bottle of blood alley bitter.

VERDICT: pretty tasty, definitely the best fake seafood i’ve had to date. also though, not very fishy, it was like fake chicken with a slightly seaweedy taste. it’s ok, if you’ve got a hankering for fish and chips it will do the trick.

TARTAR SAUCE

1/2 c. vegenaise (gross i know, but so is tartar sauce so WHATEVER)

2 tsp capers, chopped up

1/2 dill pickle, diced very small

1 tsp dijon mustard

1 squeeze lemon juice and a tiny bit of zest

black pepper

a bit of fresh dill, chopped fine

Mix it up!

CHIPS

10 red potatoes cut in wedges

oil

salt and pepper

Toss potatoes in oil and season, bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway. They should get a really nice crispy outside.

I tossed them with a bit of nutritional yeast after they were done baking.
