Vegan faux fish made with canned banana blossoms, these healthy baked “fish” tacos are exploding with Old Bay seafood flavor!



Banana Blossom Vegan “Fish”:

  • 1 18oz. Can Banana Blossoms (drained and rinsed)
  • 4 Tbsp flaxmeal
  • 12 Tbsp Warm Water
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Kelp Powder or Crushed Nori (Optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper

Old Bay Tofu Crema

  • 1/2 Brick Firm Tofu
  • 1 Lime (Juiced)
  • 2 Tbsp Old Bay Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

Taco Fixings: 

  • ½ Cup Red Cabbage (Chopped)
  • 1 Medium Tomato (Diced)
  • 1 Avocado (Pit Removed, and Cubed)
  • 3 Radishes (Sliced Thin)
  • ¼ Cup Fresh Cilantro (Stems Removed and Roughly Chopped)
  • 1 Lime (Cut into Wedges for Serving)
  • 8 Tortillas


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, then drain and rinse the banana blossoms. In a medium sized bowl, add the warm water to the flaxmeal and mix. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a medium sized bowl mix 2 tsp of old bay seasoning, ½ tsp kelp powder, ¼ tsp salt and ¼ tsp black pepper into the flour.
  2. Halve the rinsed banana blossoms if they are too big for tortillas. Dip each banana blossom into the flax “egg” and then into the flour mixture and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each blossom with extra Old Bay Seasoning, if desired. Place the banana blossoms into the oven for 35-40 minutes, using a spatula flip the banana blossoms halfway through baking. 
  3. While the banana blossoms bake, make the Old Bay Tofu Crema. Place all of the ingredients for the crema into a blender and blend on high until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender if necessary. 
  4. Prepare the taco fixings while the banana blossoms bake. Heat the tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat to make them more pliable right before serving. 
  5. When the “fish” is done remove carefully and begin to build your tacos. First, add a baked banana blossom or two (if needed) to each tortilla as well as crema. Then, finish with your toppings. Add extra crema or Old Bay Hot Sauce, if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy. 
  6. Leftovers can be stored in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. We recommend reheating the banana blossoms in the oven to retain crispness. Extra Old Bay Tofu Crema can also be used for baked potatoes, as a dip for chopped fresh vegetables, or as a garnish on soup.
