Whoah.. well, ever since turning to this lifestyle many months back; I haven't once craved any sort of meat. And yet, suddenly for the past two days, I've been craving fish so ridiculously bad!



Nothing I eat or do changes that.. though just the thought of actually eating one makes me nauseous!



Does anyone have a recipe that just tastes like fish? I have to get through this!



..any baked/cake-like versions..

You could try the better-than-tuna salad recipe in the recipe forum. Makes good sandwiches and baked potato topping.

Definitely the mock tuna salad recipe. It's basically just mashed chickpeas with vegenaise and a few other spices (salt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and horseradish if you have it)

Veggie sushi might help too - the seaweed makes it taste like fish.

I agree with the sushi rolls - are you near the ocean, I just collected my daily limit of Fucus gardneri and they are so delicious. The tips were swollen which is when they are at their best. Another thought is a mushroom called Russula xerampelina - it tastes very fishy! Also tofu thatis fermented can be quite fishy and somewhat of an aquired taste.

This might help, too. The last meat I ever ate was salmon, and I used to LOOOVE the flavor despite being grossed out that I was eating an animal.

Well, when I was eating it, there was a really strange little "spot" on the meat that had a different texture than the rest of the fish, despite being cooked. It was kind of like a little brown "puddle" of mush in the meat- very small, but definitely weird. I poked my fork into it and pulled out a long blood worm. :barf

Thanks! Seriously. I used to adore salmon. Now, if I ever crave it, I will think of this story. Eeeeeeeewwwww.....

Perhaps, just perhaps your craving something in the fish that your diet is deficient in? and not the actual fish itself, your body tends to know whats in food, maybe you need omega 3's or something? no idea, bull ill bet theres something in the fish your body needs, you just got to find out what it is and eat it. Sorry I have no mock fish recipes, but I dont think they would help anyway.

Yes, that is a very good idea! It reminds me of shrimp if I am thinking of the same Russula species as you are. Another good mushroom for substiuting sea food would be the Lobster Mushroom which at least in appearance resembles shell fish somewhat and also Sulphur Shelf which when young has the texture of white fish(or chicken) which you could batter and fry with perhaps seaweed for a more oceanic flavor.

You know what's so weird? At the beginning of my vegetarianism, I had MASSIVE cravings for things like chicken and fish. But here's the thing: every time I cheated and tried it, I seriously said "Wow, this isn't anything like I remember it tasting." I was craving a hyped up flavor that didn't really exist. Could this be your case too?

I had massive cravings for fish when I stopped eating other meats. For awhile, I just gave in and ate it. A couple weeks after that I started taking a B12 supplement, and almost immediately the fish cravings stopped. I had gone for a couple years of eating meat only once or twice a week, so I may have already been low.

A visualization that helped me get over the fish thing many moons ago, it seems brutal, but it's the truth and it helps:



Think of seeing a delicious vegan meal in front of you, and then you go to take a bite. Suddenly a hook tears through your cheek and blood runs down your face, and as much as you struggle, you can't break free. You are pulled with all of your bodyweight on the hook towards unfamiliar territory, and are grabbed by a being much larger than you. They hold you tightly, and raise a large club and hit you once, and the more you twitch, the more they crack you over the head until you see nothing but darkness.

That IS brutal but absolutely true. I think going fishing with my dad when I was 10 played a big part in me going veggie a few years later.
