    I like the way you described over-fishing & the fact based health (& ethical) reasons for eating vegan.🌱As someone who didn’t care for the smell & taste of fish before becoming vegan, I luckily don’t miss it. However, I appreciate that this recipe can make it so much easier for fish lovers to eat vegan “fish”.🎉 Looking forward to seeing more of your food changes & more delicious recipes!🍠 R🍁

      Thank you! When it comes down to it, that’s the reason I don’t eat fish. And I LOVED fish 😩

    • @VanDeSese on October 29, 2023 at 7:01 am

      Thanks so much! Looks great! Fish eats algae and that’s why they have omega 3 EPA/DHA – same one we can get via algae oil (do not heat), clean and pure with no heavy metals. 🙂

    • @BirdmanVeganFuture on November 17, 2023 at 12:40 am

      I cosign that. Super Trawler nets kill or suffocate ALL types of sealife too and fish farms are sick and lack omegas. Algae oil is great for omega3

      sorry, but it is not “your vegan salmon recipe”, there are tons of recreations of this exact thing, and people are at least tagging original creators and saying about where they got their inspiration from. Sam posted this back in 2021 on her personal blog.
      stop being rude and ignorant. there is nothing wrong in adapting different things, recipes, kitchens, diets and cultures into your own cooking, but please, don’t call them ‘mine’ and telling how ‘you’ specifically worked on this 🙂

    This recipe looks amazing! Im quite eager to try it. Never been a fan of Fish actually never even tried salmon. But this vegan version has been an intrest for a while your recipe looks so good 👍
    Glad to see you back on YouTube as well 😊

    🌴☀️Yes it HAS been a long long time I’m still a bit cross BUT…I did have your first cookbook to get me thru…I’ve made just about everything in it. RIGHT so this recipe is jaw dropping 😮I will definitely try this one as well. Can’t wait for book #2 although I’ll get the hard copy this time, didn’t like the digital version as much with the first one. Bravo on the recipe ☀️🌴

    Edit: I’d love a signed copy, will there be a chance when it’s released?☀️🌴

    I love this recipe, I’ve made a variation of it before 😋. To add some omega 3s and make it taste even more fishy, I like to drizzle a little flax oil on top. It changes the mouth feel sooo much!

  7. @AC-yb9ml on October 27, 2023 at 10:11 pm

    Literally ran out to buy the ingredients! I’ve never eaten any fish but my husband misses salmon since going vegan and I cant wait to make this for him thank you!

    • @nmg6248 on November 26, 2023 at 4:55 pm

      Yes vegan food is delicious! So much food in so many cultures is already vegan. But in the west veganism threatens many [cruel] industries and so there’s a lot of propaganda about vegan food being weird and bland.

      I think a lot of chefs disparage it because you have to learn a whole new set of techniques to flavor your food and make it incredible. Those aren’t the skills they are familiar with and so try to make it seem like it isn’t good.

      But more and more people are discovering vegan food is wonderful and they are learning to fix meals themselves. Not to mention the health benefits… I’m 52 and my heart calcium score is ZERO and not evidence of any plaque in my heart or arteries 👏🏽🙏🏽✨

  13. @vivianhoetter on November 9, 2023 at 1:05 pm

    I tried it and was a little dissapointed at first, because I always expect the exact flavors like in the real thing. Reheated it the next day and then it was really good! I think the fishy taste of the nori sheet was soaked up in the tofu. Maybe next time I will throw nori sheets in the marinade aswell 🙂

      @@amaria164 Tofu and Nori are rich in vitamins and minerals. Tofu is a complete protein, supports heart health and can help lower risk of getting breast cancer and type 2 diabetes. Nori also has the omega 3s that fish has, but you could also add things like walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds and edamame to your diet to get enough since most people don’t eat nori daily.
