Faux ‘Fish’ Sticks With Coconut Basil Crema [Vegan]

Remember those frozen fish sticks your mom used to throw on a sheet pan and heat up in the toaster oven? These are way better. Hearts of palm are the secret ingredient in these "un-fish" sticks, and you will be amazed at how similar they look and taste to traditional fish sticks! Vegetables – what can't they do?

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

About 15 sticks

Cook Time

35

Ingredients

For the ‘Fish’ Sticks:

  • 2 14-ounce cans hearts of palm
  • 1 1/3 cups Panko breadcrumbs, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vegan Worcestershire
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

For the Coconut Basil Crema:

  • 1 13.5-ounce can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

To Make the ‘Fish’ Sticks:

  1. Combine 2/3 cup breadcrumbs with other ingredients for sticks in a food processor and pulse a few times until roughly chopped.
  2. Form into stick shapes, dip into remaining crumbs, and turn to coat all sides.
  3. Heat about 1/4-inch of oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Fry a few sticks at a time for 1-2 minutes per side, then transfer to paper towel-lined plate.

To Make the Crema:

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.
  2. Pour into a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat.
  3. Stir constantly until it begins to thicken, about four minutes.
  4. Serve warm with sticks or refrigerate to serve cold.

Notes

If you prefer, these can be baked at 400°F for 12-15 minutes until crispy instead of frying.

These look really good, but is there something else to use besides breadcrumbs, I am trying to eat clean and healthy as I can, grain is very bad for us. Blessings to all

PLEASE DONT USE HEARTS OF PALM OR ANY PALM PRODUCTS IF YOU CARE AT ALL ABOUT THE ORGANGUTANS AND OTHER SPECIES RAVAGED BY THE PALM INDUSTRY. CANNED ARTICHOKE HEARTS MAKE A FINE SUBSTITUTE!
