This homemade vegan carrot lox with healthy omega 3 fats is easy to make and just as flavorful as real smoked salmon! It makes a great vegan fish alternative that will definitely surprise your family and friends at your next weekend breakfast or brunch!
Use a vegetable peeler or mandoline to slice the carrots lengthwise into thin ribbons.
Place carrot ribbons in a steaming basket or heatproof sieve in a large pot with a bit of water. Place lid on top and steam for about 5 minutes until carrots are soft but not mushy. Adjust time as needed.
Gently remove carrots from basket and place in a bowl. Allow to cool slightly but not completely. (They should be still warm when tossed with the marinade.)
Stir together the ingredients for the marinade. Then add to the warm carrot ribbons and gently toss to coat.
Transfer to an airtight container or ziplock bag along with the nori sheet and seal tightly.
Refrigerate overnight to allow the carrots to absorb the flavors.
