20ozCan of Jackfruit in WATERbrined jackfruit is too salty
1/4cPanko Breadcrumbsplus more for rolling
1tspOld Bay Seasoningplus more for rolling
1tbspNeutral Flavored Oil
FOR THE VEGAN TARTAR SAUCE:
1tbspDill Picklesfinely chopped
1 1/2tspWhite Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepperto taste
Drain and rinse jackfruit. Process until shredded in food processor.
Add remaining ingredients to the food processor except reserved seasoned breadcrumb topping and oil.
In a shallow plate, add breadcrumbs and a sprinkle of the Old Bay Seasoning. Toss to combine.
Using a small cookie scoop, add balls of mixture directly to the breadcrumb mixture. Toss before attempting to shape into sticks. It's MUCH easier once they are coated with crumbs.
Add oil to a non-stick pan over medium high heat and gently transfer the sticks to the pan. They are fragile at this point, so take some care here. Once golden and crisp on the first side, gently flip to repeat.
Combine ingredients for homemade tartar sauce. Serve with the warm "fish" sticks.
This batter can be made into any shape, so feel free to make small patties if you prefer!
