The flaky texture of artichokes is perfect to make vegan fish. It’s super easy to make: The artichokes are battered, fried, and served with potatoes and vegan tartar sauce. It tastes so similar to real fish.
- 1 jar artichokes in brine/water (170g) about 15 pieces
- frying oil
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dill
- 1 tablespoon crushed nori
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch turmeric
- 1 tablespoon pickle juice
- 1 tablespoon caper brine (or sub with more pickle juice)
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sparkling water
- Rinse and drain the artichokes.
- In separate bowls, combine the ingredients for the flour mixture and whisk together the ingredients for the batter.
- In a pot or wok, heat the frying oil. You'll want enough so that the battered artichokes can swim in the oil but make sure you leave enough space in the pot/wok so that it doesn't spill over.
- Coat the artichokes in the flour mixture. Then dip them in the batter. Carefully lower them in the oil. Let them fry for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown, flipping them once.
- Transfer the fried artichokes onto a kitchen paper to remove excess oil. Serve with tartar sauce and potato wedges, for example. Add fresh dill on top and a squeeze of lemon.
- *With how many vegan fish pieces you will end up, depends on how many artichokes are in the jar. I've had about 15 pieces in mine = 170g of artichokes.
