There's more variety than you might think.

As a long-time vegan, I remember when there were zero vegan seafood options. But over the past few years, the seafood-less market has exploded, bringing plenty of readily-available options.

This guide is a celebration of all-things vegan seafood.

First, an extensive shopping guide to help you find these options. Next, easy vegan recipes to make a wide variety of dishes at home. I included a few dipping sauces, too.

Are you hungry yet? Let’s check out the vegan catch of the day.

Here’s what you need to know before you head to the store.

Finding vegan seafood in stores

While not as widely available as other vegan meats, these products are showing up more and more at grocery stores and big-box stores. You’ll find them in three places; the refrigerated, the freezer, and near other canned meats in the dry sections.

Typically, grocery stores stock vegan seafood options near non-vegan versions.
