Ingredients for vegan hake

  • 250 gr. tofu (firm)
  • 1 nori seaweed sheet
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • rice flour (to coat)
  • 200 ml. extra virgin olive oil
  • parsley (to decorate)

Ingredients for the marinera sauce

  • 1 tomato (pear type)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 25 ml. white wine
  • 125 ml. water
  • 1 teaspoon rice flour


  1. Drain the tofu and dry it with a clean cloth. Next, cut it into 3 cm. rectangular fillets wide by 6 cm. long and 1 cm. thick, add a pinch of salt and set aside.
  2. Chop the onion finely and grate the garlic. Set aside.
  3. Wash the tomato and grate it. Set aside too.
  4. Place the seaweed on a clean smooth surface, put a tofu fillet on it and cut the seaweed a little larger than the surface that the tofu occupies, since when frying it shrinks a little. Afterwards, adhere it well to the tofu and coat the fillet in the flour. Do the same with the rest of the fillets.
  5. Put the oil to heat over medium heat in a pan and, when it is hot, add the coated fillets and fry for 1 minute on each side. Once fried, put them in a colander or drainer to eliminate the excess oil and then place them in a little deep saucepan. Set aside.
  6. Leave a little of the oil in which the tofu has been fried and fry the onion and garlic in it. When the onion is transparent, add the grated tomato and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Next, add the flour and stir.
  7. Add the paprika, stir and fry for 1 minute.
  8. Then add the wine and cook for 1 more minute to allow the alcohol to evaporate.
  9. Add the water and salt and let it fry. When it starts to boil, add the content of the pan to the pot where the tofu is and let it boil all together for 5 minutes over low heat. After this time, remove from the heat and serve with a little chopped parsley on top.
