Sophie’s Kitchen

This plant-based seafood brand is tasty AF (as fish). If you’re looking for crispy, golden vegan shrimp, Sophie’s Kitchen is your best choice! This product uses rice flakes, potato starch, agave nectar, and seaweed alginate for its shrimpy texture and flavor. Try these battered shrimps atop veggie tacos or paired with french fries and plant-based tartar sauce.

Plant-Based Seafood Co.

Introducing Plant-Based Seafood Co. Mind Blown Coconut Shrimp. This new product makes for a unique weekend appetizer when paired with a sweet, orange dipping sauce. This nostalgic, vegan-friendly coconut shrimp contains konjac powder, vegetable root starch, and a sweet coconut coating for a firm, shrimpy texture and sweet and salty taste.

Mind Blown


The vegan shrimp from BeLeaf packs such a realistic shrimp taste and texture that you won’t even BeLeaf it isn’t the real deal. Food puns aside, this plant-based seafood alternative is the perfect choice for homemade sushi, grilled shrimp skewers, and fried rice alike. These low-calorie shrimps are incredibly versatile, so stock up and get cooking.


Loving Hut

The Fresh Ocean Shrimp from Loving Hut uses mushroom extract, non-GMO soy protein, and vegan marine flavor for a realistic, shrimp-like product. We love to use this seafood alternative in stir-fries, shrimp scampi pasta dishes, creamy deli salads, and beyond. These veggie shrimps can even be deep-fried at home! Pass the cocktail sauce.

Vegan Zeastar

Dutch brand Vegan Zeastar has perfected vegan seafood! Their Vegan Shrimpz are available in original, flavored, and crispy varieties. The brand’s vegan sashimi has grown in popularity in the US, however the shrimps remain in limited supply. Vegan Zeastar products can be found in select New York and California restaurants and grocers. Keep your eyes peeled for the increased availability of these vegan shrimp alternatives.

Anja Grommons


During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.

Must-have products: Ezekiel Bread, Racconto Giardiniera, Pacifica Vegan Collagen Complex Serum, Elina Organics Botanical Cleanser
