Fish Sticks

BY : PUBLISHED : April 15th, 2013 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

I was craving some fish and chips this weekend.  Being somebody who does not eat fish, I needed to find an alternative.  Using nori, you get that seafood taste. You also get tons of health benefits from the nori sheets. These are a bit tedious to make, but the end result is worth the time it takes to roll each piece of tofu.  Enjoy!

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.75
