McDonald’s Copycat – Vegan Filet-O-Fish Sandwich & Tartar Sauce
for the fishless filets
1 lb block extra firm tofu
1 sheet roasted nori – cut into squares the size of your tofu cakes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or your flour of choice)
1 TBS flaked roasted seaweed
1 TBS kelp granules
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
Panko or other bread crumbs – about 1/2 cup or more
2 slices vegan cheese
for the tartar sauce
1/4-1/3 cup vegan mayo
1 tsp sweet relish
1 tsp chopped dill pickle
1 tsp minced onion
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
pinch of salt
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Split the tofu in half & then press them between paper towels with something heavy on top. After 20 minutes or so – cut the two slices into squares.
Put panko in one bowl. In another, whisk enough water in with the flour, flaked seaweed, kelp granules, lemon & salt so you get a thin batter. Put a square of nori on each tofu cake & dredge through the batter & then the panko – getting all sides covered. Place on a cooking sheet topped with parchment paper. Spray with some cooking oil & bake for about 30 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden. Top with cheese & cook until melted.
While they cook, whisk the tartar sauce ingredients together.
When the tofu is golden & the cheese melted, place each tofu cake on a bun & top with tartar sauce. Enjoy!
