...for the marinade...

...for the crust...


  • Cut the seitan into bite-size portions.
  • Prepare the marinade by combining all the ingredients to a bowl.
  • Add the seitan pieces and coat them well in the marinade with a spatula. Allow to marinate from 15 minutes up to 2 hours.
  • Heat up the vegetable oil into a deep pan. The oil will be ready for deep frying once after dipping a wooden skewer into it, it will start having small bubbles around it.
  • Mix together all the ingredients of the crust into a deep dish or bowl.
  • Coat each piece of marinated seitan into the breadcrumb mix.
  • Deep fry the seitan nuggets until golden brown (this will take up to 5-10 minutes, depending on the temperature of the oil/size of the nuggets).
  • Serve the nuggets immediately with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes with your favourite dipping sauces or simply with lemon wedges.
