Firm tofu, which you can buy in almost any grocery store, is one of the easiest substitutes for the flesh of dead fish. You can coat tofu slices with the same type of batter and fry or bake it using the same techniques.
To make tofu fish n' chips, dredge marinated tofu in a mixture of flour, corn meal, and Old Bay seasoning, and then fry it in an oil that won't burn over high heat. Serve with a side of fries or chips and vegan tartar sauce for a complete meal. Enjoy!
Tofu Fish 'n' Chips
1 16-oz. pkg. extra-firm tofu
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup corn meal
1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
•Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch slices and wrap with paper towels to drain the excess water. Set aside.
•In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper to make a marinade. Add the sliced tofu to the marinade, making sure that the tofu is completely submerged. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
•In a separate bowl, combine the flour, corn meal, and Old Bay seasoning. Remove the tofu from the marinade and dredge in the flour mixture until all sides are covered.
•In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add about 1 inch of vegetable oil. When the oil is ready, add the battered pieces of tofu and fry until golden, about 2 minutes on each side.
•Remove from the oil and place on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
