 Cooking with SoyaRama Fish-Liks

Soya Rama is a thriving family business established in 1985. I was lucky to have these products hand delivered to me to taste test. The name may imply that it is a soya based product but it is a wheat protein based product.

There are 3 products available in the market. I have all 3 products and today’s taste test will feature the Fish-Liks.

Soya Rama Fish-Liks

The products are free from preservatives, artificial colour, dairy, egg and meat.

Ingredients and a little about the product

For more information on the product, you can visit their website

The Fish-Liks are well seasoned to give a flavourful taste once prepared. The texture is similar to hake. My family enjoyed it and the product can be prepared in a variety of ways from simply fried, to a curry to a breyani.



Soya Rama Fish-Liks

2 crisp lettuce leaves

coconut oil

Cumin coleslaw

1 cup coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrot mixture)

1/4 cup vegan mayo (I used BeWell)

1/4 teaspoon ground and roasted cumin powder

Pink salt to taste

Coriander pepper salsa

1 small orange/green/red pepper

1/4 cup chopped coriander

1 Tablespoon lemon infused olive oil

Pink salt to taste


Defrost Fish-Liks and fry for 10-12 minutes in some coconut oil.

While the Fish-Liks are frying prepare the coleslaw and pepper salsa. Both these can be prepared in 12 minutes.

Mix all the ingredients for the coleslaw and season with pink salt to taste.

Chop the pepper and coriander, add the olive oil and season with salt to taste.

To assemble the taco.

Place lettuce leave on a plate. Spread the coleslaw at the bottom. Add chopped Fish-Liks and top with coriander pepper salsa.

Happy Cooking!

    1. The recipe looks long because I broke it up into parts. It took me about 30 minutes in total to make. I cooked the "fish" while I made the salsa and the coleslaw.Please let me know what you think after eating it?
