Tofu “fish” recipe – Vegan

I hadn’t planned to post this recipe, but i had so many people asking me about it, so i thought i would post the ingredients (no measurements) as i just threw everything together! You don’t really need measurements for this recipe either as you just mix the wet and dry ingredients in seperate bowls and then fry – and you add more if you need it!


Tofu “fish” is a great alternative to baked fish. Of course it doesn’t have the same texture or consistency, but it works and with some dill sauce or herb sauce and cooked potatoes it works perfectly!!

Note: Can be a good idea to marinate the tofu before hand if you want extra flavour.



1 block tofu (250g)

Bread crumbs (or panko)

2 x Aquafaba (i.e the mixture from canned chickpeas)

Flour & salt and pepper

Oil for frying

How to:

Begin with chopping the tofu into medium thick slices.

In one bowl pour the aquafaba. In a second bowl pour flour and add seasoning. In a third bowl pour bread crumbs or panko.

Then begin by first rolling the tofu slice in the flour, then into the aquafaba and lastly in the panko/bread crumbs and then into the frying pan to fry. Note, it can be good to have one hand for the dry ingredients and one hand for the wet ingredients. 

Fry on medium heat until the bread crumbs are golden brown.

Make a sauce with ex mayonnaise&vegan creme fraiche or soya yoghurt. Mix with herbs, example dill and salt and pepper.


Squeeze some fresh lemon on top and serve with sauce and cooked potatoes!

  1. This looks so delicious! Have you considered adding nori sheets on top of the tofu for a fish like flavour? I’m yet to try making it but sounds like it could be good!

    This sounds really nice 🙂 Is there any particular type of tofu you use or can you use any?


    1. I used a firm non marinated tofu. However you can use a marinated tofu if you like or marinate the tofu yourself for more flavour!! 😊
