Moving Mountains® launches plant-based fish fillets
Well, that was a surprise. Convincing vegan fish! I have been a food product reviewer for the past 17 years and for 15 of those I avoided plant-based anything. I felt so sorry for vegans and vegetarians who were presented with foods that lacked appropriate texture and any taste. I had the impression that those manufacturers were convinced that their customers were seeking bland and boring, and preferably beige, dishes.
But those dull days are over. For the last couple of years I have enjoyed very well-crafted vegetarian and vegan meat products, so I was curious to see what a fishy option was all about. Moving Mountains® have a winner in these fish fillets.
Taste and texture of real fish
Moving Mountains® (www.movingmountainsfoods.com), a pioneering British food tech company, has launched these brand-new plant-based Fish Fillets so we can all enjoy a tempting fish supper while not depleting fish stocks. They use plant-based ingredients and a bit of science to create the taste and texture of real fish. They are 100% free of microplastics and mercury, and have 10g of protein and 4.5g of fibre per 100g. The flaky texture is indeed very much like real fish, and they are coated in golden, crunchy panko breadcrumbs.
Preparation is simple. They can be cooked in just 10 minutes from frozen in a frying pan or cooked in 20 minutes in the oven. Served with chips and mushy peas they make a traditional meal that the whole family will enjoy.
380 million portions of fish and chips are eaten in the UK every year, impacting ocean life. The Moving Mountains® Fish Fillet has been created to tackle the sustainability crisis in the oceans caused by over-fishing, whilst still allowing Brits to enjoy their favourite meal.
Moving Mountains® plant-based fish fillets are available to buy from Ocado (RRP £3.99).
