Here are all the vegan fish alternatives you can buy after watching Seaspiracy

There’s a vegan version of everything from smoked salmon to scampi


Netflix’s newest doc Seaspiracy reveals shocking truths about the lies in the fishing industry, with people saying it’s changed their opinions on fishing and seafood forever and saying they’re never eating it again. But if you’re now swearing off fish for life this doesn’t mean you’re now stuck on a diet of salad – far from it, thanks to a load of vegan fish alternatives you can easily find at every single UK supermarket.

It’s never been easier to be vegan, and there are plant-based alternatives for everything you could possibly imagine: From smoked salmon and prawns, to scampi and battered fish fillets that are just ready for your vegan Friday night fish and chips dinner.

Here are some of the best vegan fish alternatives you can buy after Seaspiracy makes you never want to eat fish again:

Quorn Vegan Fishless Fingers

Nothing beats a fish finger sandwich, and these fishless fish fingers from Quorn hit the spot every time. They’re easy to find in loads of supermarkets, so really what more could you want?

Quorn Vegan Fishless Scampi

Another offering from Quorn is their vegan scampi, which if I’m being honest is basically just mini versions of their vegan fish fingers. But they’re peng, so you can’t complain.

Linda McCartney’s Vegan Fish Goujons

If you want something slightly boujee-er than a vegan fish finger sandwich, look no further than Linda McCartney’s fish goujons, made from soya and wheat protein. They have a crispy breadcrumb coating of lemon and parsely, and are peng.

Linda McCartney’s Vegan Fishcakes

Favourite brand of many vegan people thanks to their massive range of meat and fish alternatives, Linda McCartney’s also has a vegan fishcake. This one’s made of soya and wheat protein, is flavoured with lemongrass and chill and has a crispy breadcrumb coating with lemon and parsley. Yum.

M&S Plant Kitchen Melt in the Middle No Fish Cakes

These vegan fish cakes from M&S are made of rice protein which gives them a flaky texture, and have a breadcrumb coating and a creamy chive filling that melts in the middle. They’ve been called “top tier” and honestly? They slap.
