Vegan Fish and Chips

My first time cooking with the magical banana blossom was a SUCCESS! The texture of this mysterious flower is perfect for vegan fish, and I'm already planning all of the other recipes I can adapt to include it, like curries, cutlets and buddha bowls. 

Made using Nature's Charm Banana Blossom, my Vegan Fish and Chips recipe is really easy to follow and pretty quick to make, and serves (pardon the pun) as such a lovely, comforting and indulgent dinner or lunch. Between tempeh, tofu, jackfruit and banana blossom, it's an exciting time to be a vegan!

Instructions for the chips

  • Preheat oven to approximately 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine potato chips with oil and seasoning, and place on prepared tray. Fee free to add extra seasoning to taste.
  • Cook for approximately 45 minutes, or until cooked through and crispy.

Instructions for the fish

  • Drain tin of banana blossom pat dry.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, spices, sesame seeds and salt and pepper with a fork.
  • Add soda water and mix to combine (some lumps are okay!).
  • Heat oil in a large pan. You can deep, shallow or pan fry the fish, so use as much as needed. I prefer these deep fried for ultimate crunch.
  • While oil heats up, dip each piece of banana blossom in batter, then once oil is bubbling, place into prepared pot. 
  • Cook each piece until the outside is brown and crispy, the place on a some paper towels to remove excess oil.

Instructions to serve

  • Place fish, chips and salad into bowls and top with sauce (optional). Enjoy hot!
