The Finished Product

Pat eggplant dry and season on both sides with salt and pepper and coat it in the beer batter. Dredge the eggplant in reserved flour and slide into oil as coated. Fry, turning over frequently, until deep golden and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Fry remaining fish in batches, returning oil to 375 degrees F between batches.

Serve eggplant-fish with French fries.

    So I think you are just the greatest thing! I make all your stuff (you make this transition a friggin breeze) and I made this. Only difference was I breaded it with the panko crumbs that you used when doing the fillet o-ish! I also did it in bite sized pieces and dipped it in the vegan tarter and oh my god THE BEST

    This is so imaginative! How much oil would you use if frying in a pan? I rarely deep fry anything but this looks worth trying out :)

      if simply frying in a pan, I would use about 1/4 cup of oil :)

    Why do you need to call it FISH if it’s vegan? Why do you need to make substitutes of the real thing instead of creating something and calling it by what it is.. Beer battered AUBERGINE

      Making things familiar to the masses makes eating vegan much more attractive to omnivores.

    I tried several tofu iterations of fish and chips and none of them were satisfactory to me. I tried your recipe and it came out perfect. I can cross out one more non vegan craving that comes up for me which feels amazing
