According to a national Vegetarian Resource Group poll, almost 15 percent of Americans said they never eat fish or seafood. For all of them, and others who would like alternatives to fish, Chef Nancy Berkoff has created Vegan Seafood — Beyond the Fish Shtick for Vegetarians.

In Vegan Seafood, you will find:

You can avoid fish, but still enjoy the taste of the sea with Ethiopian-Style "Shrimp" and Sweet Potato Stew, "Tuna" Noodle Casserole, "Fish" Sticks, and "Crab" Rangoon. Or see a new way of eating with Eggplant Caviar, Gefilte "Fish," and "Fish Tacos." Explore new territory with "Crab" Enchiladas, "Tuna" Salad, and Mango Salad with Avocado and "Shrimp."

After using Vegan Seafood by Nancy Berkoff, you will agree with millions of vegetarians and say: "SEA ANIMALS — DON’T EAT THEM."

Chef Nancy Berkoff, RD, has received awards from the American Culinary Federation, California Restaurant Association, and the U.S. Department of the Navy for Culinary Training. Ms. Berkoff was named Chef of the Year by the Los Angels Chapter of the American Culinary Federation.
