Battered "Fish" (Banana Blossoms) & Dip Vegan Recipe

Banana Blossom Fish & Dip

Equipment Requirements

Deep Fryer // Grapeseed Oil // 2 Bowls // Leak Proof Tupperware

Recipe Ingredients & Directions


2 cans of banana blossoms (Check Local Oriental Food Market)

1 Nori sheet cut into small pieces

4 small kelp sheets (1 inch X 2 inch)

1 tsp kelp seasoning mix

1/2 lemon

1 shallots chopped

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup spelt flour

1/2 cup chickpea flour

1 tbsp non aluminum baking powder

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 cup sea moss gel

2 cups spring water (pour 1 quarter, mix, repeat)

Dry Ingredients

1/2 cup spelt flour

1/2 cup chickpea flour

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt


Combine contents under soaking ingredients.

Cover and set in the fridge overnight.

Mix wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls.

Place oil in deep fryer to the recommended frying level and turn on. We recommend using grapeseed oil for this recipe.

If you do not have a deep fryer, you may use a small pot to deep fry.

Just be sure that you use enough oil to completely submerge the banana blossom.

Take 1 banana blossom and either fold it in half, or leave it in a long strip depending on desired size.

Submerge into wet batter. Then place into dry batter and use a spoon to cover completely.

Return banana blossom to the wet batter and submerge again. Remove and place in the dry batter once more and cover completely again.
