Tempeh Mockfish

Using tempeh with sea vegetables, this is a mouth-watering mixture that is so versatile it can be a sandwich filling or the main dish at dinner.

This “mockfish” mixture is amazing tossed with pasta or used as a stuffing. You can even process it for a delicious paté with the flavor of the sea but without the pain.

2 T. olive oil
1 pkg. tempeh with sea vegetables, diced
1 small to medium onion, chopped finely
1 sheet Nori seaweed, cut into small pieces
1 T. vegan mayonnaise

To Prepare:
Heat a heavy skillet on medium heat until hot and add the olive oil and onions and sauté until translucent and softened, about 5 minutes. Add the diced tempeh and cook, stirring often, until tempeh is nicely browned. Remove the pan from the heat and add the pieces of seaweed. Cool the mixture for 10-15 minutes before adding the mayonnaise, then mix well, and season to taste.

Use as a sandwich, ravioli, or wonton filling, or as a topping for crostini.

Watch how tempeh is made.

I can not find tempeh anywhere at all where I live. Is there a place online that sells it? I have only been able to find one website, and they only sell it flavored with garlic.


Yes, you can add additional Nori flakes to the tempeh. Nori flakes or powder (available in most markets) will add more flavor than chopped seaweed sheets. Add a little at a time and taste as you go along.


Tempeh with Sea Vegetables is not available anywhere in my area. Could I just add more nori?


Hi Libby, Tempeh is perishable so shipping it might get a little pricey. That may also depend on how much you buy. Check online! If you have any Asian markets nearby they may also stock it. I use a few brands, all organic. Soyboy, Lightlife and storebrand by Wholefood. Hopefully your grocer can find a supplier and carry Tempeh for you. Check in and let us how how you fare! Thanks for writing and good luck.
