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
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.
