Looking for the best vegan/vegetarian shrimp options? We got you covered with the best plant-based shrimp recipes and substitutions.
These brands taste, cook and share the same textures as orginal shrimp: BeLeaf, Plant Based Seafood Co., Sophie's Kitchen, Vegan Zeastar Shrimp, Loving Hut Fresh Ocean Shrimp and All Vegetarian Inc. brands.
They have a look, mouthfeel and when seasoned with ingredients like seaweed and Old Bay seasoning taste like real shrimp. Konjac is a good ingredient to replicate the texture of faux prawns/shrimp.
The main ingredient in this vegan shrimp is Konjac (pronounced kon-jack) with the addition of some seaweed gelatin thickening agent, spices and paprika for color. Konjac is the shortened name of an East Asian root vegetable that produces an edible tuber.
Vegan, vegetarianism and seafood allergies are all great reasons to give these plant-based shrimp a try.
Mushrooms, Konjac Shrimp, Banana Blossoms and Heart of Palm are all good alternatives.
