An online food retailer has just launched vegan smoked salmon – made from carrots.
Muscle Food, which sells a range of food and food prep products, offers the ‘smoked salmon’ as a kit that you prepare at home.

The No Fish Salmon Recipe Kit, which serves one person, includes carrots and a marinade containing smoked paprika, Colgin liquid smoke, kelp powder, cider vinegar, rapeseed oil, and soy sauce. The carrots should be baked and marinated overnight.
The kit, which costs £3, contains 5g fat and 99 calories per serving, and makes up one of your five a day.

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, a spokesperson for Musclefood.com said: “As people become increasingly health-conscious and look to cut down their intake of animal products, finding an alternative to their favorite foods can prove a challenge.
“This applies particularly to fish products, as replicating the texture and flavor of fish isn’t easy. Surprisingly, carrot strips soaked in a unique marinade makes an excellent cruelty- and fat-free salmon alternative.
“By following a few simple steps provided with the ingredients, home cooks can turn humble carrots into tasty ‘salmon’ strips perfect on bagels or with vegetables and rice.”
