Fish Sticks
Beer Batter
  • 2 tablespoon chickpea flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/4-1 1/2 cup dark beer
  • about 2 cups cooking oil
Tartar Sauce
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 heaping teaspoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Combine the ingredients for the tartar sauce and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a food processor combine ingredients for fish sticks. Pulse a few times until ingredients are broken down and well combined. There should still be large chunks.
  3. Shape the heart of palm mixture into 8-10 fish sticks and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, squeezing out excess water. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  4. To make the beer batter, combine the chickpea flour with water until thick and goopy. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine flour and spices. Mix in chickpea egg. Slowly add beer, about 1/4 cup at a time, while mixing. The batter should be fairly thick but thin enough to evenly coat fish sticks. If your fish sticks are falling apart in the batter, thin it with a little more beer.

  5. Heat oil in a small cast-iron skillet, filling enough so that it's about 1" deep.

  6. Once the oil is hot, coat the fish sticks in the batter 2-3 at a time. With a flat utensil, gently place in hot oil and deep fry for about 2 minutes, flipping halfway in between if necessary.

  7. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  8. Serve immediately with prepared tartar sauce.
Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing - Since these fish sticks are fried, they need to be eaten quickly after preparation. Otherwise, you'll find yourself with some soggy battered fish sticks and trust me, they don't taste near as good. Serve them with Vegan Tartar Sauce, with french fries, or as part of these Vegan Fish Tacos Bowls
