Wagamama has become the first major UK restaurant to launch a vegan “tuna” made from watermelon fruit, costing  £12.95.

The dish will be featured nationwide throughout January, as many Brits take on the Veganuary challenge, where they eat a plant-based diet till the end of the month. 

An estimated 250,000 participants took part in the UK event in 2019, according to the organisers.

The vegan fish is made with dehydrated watermelon which is then sliced, seared and served hot, which apparently gives it the look and texture of tuna sashimi.
