It can be challenging to find meat-based dishes that will allow for cannabis infusion, and it’s even more difficult to find a vegan-friendly meat alternative that boasts a healthy dose of cannabinoids. These vegan fish sticks check all the boxes, and then some with a crispy finish and fishy flavour that tastes just like the real thing, without any cruelty to animals.

What are vegan fish sticks made of?

These vegan fish sticks are made using a tofu base that’s light and flaky just like you’d expect from real fish! They’re also baked instead of deep fried which is even better news for your health. With the addition of flour, breadcrumbs, and some tasty herbs and spices, you’ll never be able to tell the difference between one of these and an actual strip of breaded fish.

  5. In another bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and salt together.

  • Dip one stick of tofu at a time into the batter followed by another dunk in the breadcrumb mixture, before placing them onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Repeat step 6 until all of the sticks are coated, and the batch is ready to toss into the oven.

  • Bake these vegan fish sticks for 10 minutes.

  • Flip the strips before returning them to the oven for another 8-10 minutes or until crispy.

  • Sprinkle the parsley over the top of the fish sticks as a garnish, then serve!
