You Can Now Get Vegan 'Smoked Salmon' And It Looks Delicious

You Can Now Get Vegan 'Smoked Salmon' And It Looks Delicious

Who doesn't love smoked salmon?

A decadent treat, the rich and smoky cured fish is the perfect accompaniment to our poached eggs, cream cheese bagels or rolled up in sushi.

But with all it's great qualities, it's decidedly un-vegan - which poses a problem for plant-based folk who have had to go without it.

But what if there was such a thing as... vegan smoked salmon? You can probably guess where we're going with this...

Yes: online health food retailer Musclefood has just launched a meat free version of the cured fish - made entirely from slices of carrot.

Completely fish free, the plant-based alternative promises to still be "packed with flavour".

Musclefood is selling kits for vegans to make the 'smoked salmon' themselves, and it only requires a few simple steps.

You simply bake and slice your carrots before smothering them with soy sauce marinade - made from containing smoked paprika, Colgin liquid smoke, kelp powder, cider vinegar, rapeseed oil and soy sauce - and leaving them overnight.

The No Fish Salmon Recipe Kits cost £3 and contain enough for one person to enjoy as a quick and tasty meal.

"As people become increasingly health-conscious and look to cut down their intake of animal products, finding an alternative to their favourite foods can prove a challenge," said a spokesperson for Musclefood.

"This applies particularly to fish products, as replicating the texture and flavour of fish isn't easy.

"Surprisingly, carrot strips soaked in a unique marinade makes an excellent cruelty- and fat-free salmon alternative.

"By following a few simple steps provided with the ingredients, home cooks can turn humble carrots into tasty 'salmon' strips perfect on bagels or with vegetables and rice."

We haven't had a chance to try this yet, so we can't couch for its likeness to the real deal - but we're certainly keen to try anything that pretends to be delicious smoked salmon.

Mmmm!
