“I was introduced to New Wave by a venture capital friend of mine, and I flew out and had the product prepared for me by a chef, and I didn’t even know it wasn’t shrimp,” says Tom Mastrobuoni, chief financial officer of Tyson Ventures.

The company plans to eventually roll out plant-based versions of crab and lobster too. According to New Wave chief executive Mary McGovern, the plant-based seafood will be rolled out in restaurants.

The look-a-like shrimp will taste like the real thing but it is hypoallergenic, lower in calories and cholesterol, and higher in fiber, according to the Washington Post.
