Long John Silver’s is now testing plant-based seafood products at five locations in California and Georgia. The plant-based fish will come in two options: a Plant-Based Breaded Fish-Free Fillet and a Plant-Based Breaded Crab-Free Cake. Both are part of a product line called Good Catch from Gathered Foods. The new items will be available in platters or a la carte. According to a press release, the faux fish will be flaky, like whitefish, and it’ll be in a crisp breading. The crab-free cakes will have a “sweet crab flavor” and will be seasoned with parsley, sweet peppers, green onions and spice. The proteins themselves are made from Gathered Good’s proprietary mix of lentils, chickpeas, soy, fava beans, peas, and navy beans.
