You Can Now Get Vegan 'Smoked Salmon' And It Looks Delicious
Who doesn't love smoked salmon?
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.
