Okay, so you watched Seaspiracy and are now thoroughly put off the idea of a seafood supper.

But even though it’s perfectly possible to have a healthy, tasty diet without fish, there will be times when it’s all you crave.

Think about fish and chip Fridays, tuna sandwiches, smoked salmon bagels, fish finger dinners – one day, those cravings might hit you hard.

Good news, then, that a lot of major brands have delivered unto the world a bunch of vegan and vegetarian fish alternatives that will hit the spot without wrecking your environmental credentials.
