If you have made mock fish dishes before and been disappointed, like me, because they have lacked that fishy/seaweed flavor then this is the recipe for you. The trick is adding a lot more seaweed and old bay seasoning than you think should be added.
I wish this recipe was not so time consuming for me to make, but every time I remember just how dame good it tastes, I break down and make it. It wouldn't be so labour intensive if I didn't have to make everything from scratch. It wouldn't take you that long to make this recipe if you can buy the vegan mayo, Old Bay Seasoning and kelp powder or granules need for it. My supermarket does not carry these items.
2 tsp virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chickpea flour (to coat crab cakes)
In a large bowl combine the sautéed vegetable, tofu, flour, mayonnaise, seaweed, water, Old Bay seasoning, mustard, salt (don't add the 1/2 cup chickpea flour it's for coating) and mix very well with your hands. Shape into patties.
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup light tasting olive oil (any light tasting oil)
Place everything in a food processor (EXCEPT THE OIL) and blend. While it’s still running very slowly pour in the oil using a very thin stream of oil.
1 tsp wet mustard
