It's a really hard task to create a recipe for vegan fish. Although it's pretty easy to convince your family and friends of vegan egg salad and stuffed soy steaks. But the consistency and texture of fish is still hard to recreate. For our todays fish taco we solved this problem with tofu and nori sheets. The nori sheet actually looks like fish skin and gives a fishy flavour. But to be honest: the consistency is still like tofu. We are working on this, but until then we show you this vegan tofu fish.
