Vegan Rainbow Trout

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by the80srule

A non-veggie guest of mine commented on a batch of tofu I made with Old Bay, she said that it reminded her of eating rainbow trout when she was a child. I wouldn't know what it tastes like, so I'll take her word for it! Old Bay has so much tasty versatility, I used Old Bay Seasoning #2 rather than storebought. I heartily recommend serving this with wild rice pilaf and Roasted Asparagus!

This is in no way similar at all to trout. At all. Tofu is great, but cannot be used properly as a substitute for fish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the tofu and place it on a cutting board, drying it off with paper towels and squeezing out extra water very carefully.
  2. Cut into 8 length-wise chunks, then put them into a tossing bowl.
  3. Make a marinade out of the other ingredients.
  4. Layer the marinade over the tofu and toss well to coat.
  5. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes to absorb the flavors.
  6. Heat up a frying pan over medium heat, and cook each piece for about 5-6 minutes on each side until nicely browned.
