Serves 2

For the tartar sauce

  • 2 tbsp soy milk
  • 60ml (¼ cup) olive oil
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp capers, chopped
  • 1 gherkins, finely diced
  • 1 sprig of dill, chopped

For the mushy peas

  • 200g (7oz) peas
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free butter

For the chips

  • 450g (16oz) potatoes, cut into 2cm thick sticks
  • oil for frying

For the tofish

  •  240ml (1 cup) lager
  • 140g (5oz) self raising flour, plus a little extra for dusting
  • 1 280g (10oz) block extra firm tofu, sliced into 4
  • 1 sheet nori, cut into 4
  • oil for frying


  1. Firstly for the tartar sauce, using a stick blender, blend the soy milk, olive oil and cider vinegar until thick. Once blended mix in the capers, gherkins and dill.
  2. Then for the mushy peas, bring the peas to the boil and cook for 2-3 minutes, drain them and transfer to a food processor along with the dairy-free butter, then pulse until thick but not smooth.
  3. Next for the chips, cut the potatoes into approximately 2cm thick sticks, add to a saucepan, fill the pan with water and bring to the boil. Boil for roughly 10 minutes or until chips are starting to soften but still maintain their shape, drain the chips in a colander. Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer or pan to 190C/380F and fry the chips for 4-5 minutes until golden and crispy.
  4. Finally for the tofish; to make the batter add the self-raising flour to a bowl and slowly add the lager whilst whisking to make a thick smooth batter. Then stick a piece of nori on one side of the tofu, then dust in flour. Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer or pan to 190C/380F, then dip the tofu into the batter ensuring a good coating, then place into the oil to cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden.
