Hong Kong cooks up lab-grown fish as appetite for ‘clean meat’ rises

When chef Eddy Leung was tasked with cooking what was touted as the world’s first lab-grown fish fillets in his kitchen in southwestern Hong Kong, he pan-fried some and deep-fried others before finally deciding on breaded fish burgers with tartare sauce. “Before I cooked the fish it was quite firm, but after I cooked it the texture changed to being like real fish,” Leung said of the culinary experiment that took place in the gritty Wong Chuk Hang neighbourhood late last year.

Plant-based meat startup Meatless Farm goes for a healthy image

Research for Meatless’ product began in 2015 when Toft Bech’s wife — who is a vegetarian — got frustrated over the fact she couldn’t find a healthy alternative meat product to feed the kids. “She said: ‘I wish there was just a product that I could buy to use in normal meals like spag bol’,” Bech says.

BlueNalu San Diego startup shows off world’s first slaughter-free yellowtail

“Our medallions of yellowtail can be cooked via direct heat, steamed or even fried in oil; can be marinated in an acidified solution for applications like poke, ceviche, and kimchi, or can be prepared in the raw state,” said BlueNalu’s CEO Lou Cooperhouse in a statement. “This is an enormous accomplishment and we don’t believe that any other company worldwide has been able to demonstrate this level of product performance in a whole-muscle seafood product thus far.”
