First I’m going to share my delicious Cripsy Baked Tofu “Fish” Sticks recipe.
I’ve coated my sticks in Tyrrell’s Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper Potato Crisps by dipping them in cornstarch, a blend of pumpkin puree and coconut milk and then the chip crumbs. Yum! If I could give up eating the Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar chips for coating, I think I would like that even more (that was my original plan, but I couldn’t sacrifice them).
Wow. These were delicious. I might marinate the tofu sticks in some sort of malt vinegar-based marinade next time to give the “fish” some flavor, but the crust is fantastic and I loved dipping these into a little malt vinegar. I served mine with a side of Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar chips and I felt like I was eating real “Fish and Crisps.” A definite repeat.
Tyrrell’s is an English potato crisps (that’s what they call them there, because “chips” are fries) company that uses only specific potatoes grown on their own farm. https://www.tyrrellscrisps.co.uk/ The crisps are then hand-cooked in small batches using those local potatoes, known for flavor and color. Seasonings are all-natural and home-grown. And, well, kinda crazy! In England, there are a crazy ridiculous amount of flavors, including um, interesting ones like Honey Roasted Ham and Cranberry as well as more standard flavors like English Summer Barbecue. At least, I assume it’s standard. For all I know, the English Summer part makes it crazy. In the U.S. market, Tyrrell’s has seven flavors available. But, whether you’re settling up with a bag full of Sunday Best Roast Chicken potato crisps or Lightly Sea Salted, you’re sure to find a flavor you’ll like. And, BONUS, all the crisps are MSG and gluten free.
But, are they good?
I was a little bit hesitant about a couple of flavors, including the Worcestershire and Sun-dried Tomato, but none of them were gross. In fact, I actually liked the Worcestershire one, in spite of the fact that I hate sun-dried tomatoes. It tasted like barbecue flavor chips, to me. I’m not sure whether the cheddar or the sea salt and cider vinegar chips were my favorite. But they were both incredible. Tyrrell’s chips come in 5.3 ounce bags and, in the U.S., seven flavors:
- Mature Cheddar and Chives
- Lightly Sea Salted
- Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper
- Sea Salt and Cider Vinegar
- Sweet Chili and Red Pepper
- Worcestershire Sauce and Sundried Tomato
- Beetroot, Parsnip and Carrot Crisps with Sea Salt
I didn’t care for the black pepper on it’s own much (which is why I put it on the tofu sticks, orgiinally I’d decided on coating them with salt and cider vinegar chips). The cider vingegar chips were amazing. At first, I thought the flavor was a little too subtle. But, once I started eating them, I realized that I didn’t get tired of them like I do “regular” salt and vinegar chips, which are much to strong to munch on forever. The subtle cider vinegar flavor let me munch perhaps too long.
I’m a fan of vegetable chips, so I liked those a lot too, but even if you’re not, you should give these a try. The flavor is rich, yet somehow still subtle. The crisps are also amazingly crunchy and, as a fan of doubles (the chips that are folded over), I went crazy over the amount of doubles in their batches. Not to mention the fact that they leave the skins on the chips! LOVE that. I always do that at home, but I don’t recall ever seeing that in a store-bought chip. Delicious. I highly recommend the chips and wish you luck in the Facebook fan race. Go over and fan VeggieConverter and Tyrrell’s USA and send Tyrrell’s a message that I sent you there. You won’t be sorry!
