Vegan smoked salmon, made with natural ingredients. It’s low in fat and the texture is on point. We served it on crackers with vegan cream cheese.

Ingredients

  • 3 carrots (1/2 pound or 225 g)
  • 2 nori sheets, chopped
  • 1 cup hot water (250 ml)
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple or agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF or 180ºC.
  2. Wash the carrots, add some salt to taste, place them onto a lined baking tray and bake for 40 minutes. You don’t have to peel them.
  3. In the meantime, you can make the marinade. Just add the nori, water, tamari, syrup, vinegar, paprika, garlic powder and pepper and blend until smooth.
  4. When the carrots are ready, remove from the oven, let them cool a little bit and slice them into strips with a knife, peeler or a mandoline.
  5. Transfer the carrot strips into a sealed container and massage with some salt to taste.
  6. Cover with the marinade and leave for at least 24 hours in the fridge.
  7. We spread some vegan cream cheese onto crakers and topped them with the vegan smoked salmon, dried dill and chopped red onion.
  8. Keep the vegan salmon in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes

  • Nori can be replaced for any other seaweed or just omit it if you want, although the vegan salmon won’t have a fishy flavor.
  • Use any sweetener or vinegar (or even lemon juice) you have on hand.
  • To make the salmon tastes even better, top with some extra virgin olive oil before serving.
