Plant-based - Other Seafood

 As the title says, this is the page for other plant-based seafood options...

Plant Pioneers (Sainsburys): No Prawn Toast - ⭐⭐⭐✰✰

The prawn element is made from jackfruit and king oyster mushroom which gives a decent texture. Actually these seemed meatier than the regular prawn toast. Pretty decent effort.

Plant Pioneers (Sainsburys): No Prawns Tempura - ⭐⭐⭐⭐✰

The prawn element is made from jackfruit and king oyster mushrooms, just like the No Prawn Toast. I can't say there was much flavour to really talk about, but these were nice. The stand-out part of these is the tempura batter - just stunning!

Plant Pioneers (Sainsburys): No Chuna - ⭐⭐⭐☆☆

This is Sainsbury's take on vegan tinned tuna. It comes in four varieties (Mayo / Lemon and Black Pepper / Chilli and Garlic / Brine). So far I have only tried the lemon and black pepper.

First impressions were that it was actually ok. The texture is decent. It's not particularly fishy and probably a bit dryer than regular tinned tuna. The lemon was the predominant flavour here. I mixed it with some mayo and put it in a sandwich with some cucumber. I was pretty apprehensive about trying this but I would buy it again, and I am planning on trying some of the other varieties.
