    I have put it in salads too - just cut it into small squares first

    Ooh! I haven't messed with nori yet, but found that wakume and kombu are *great* in chicken and mushroom soup (bone broth, celery, chicken, mushrooms, seaweed, spices). Wakume is also a good addition to meatloaf (beef, sausage, spinach, carrots, red bell pepper, spices).
    I was thinking nori might make a good lunch "wrap". What do you think? Is it very "seaweedy"? I can only picture it in the context of sushi, and can't remember it having much flavor on its own.

    I tried it as a wrap. It's so chewy that I practically squished all the innards out of it (tuna and avocado) in the process of ripping a piece off with my teeth. I guess that's why it's cut into bite-size pieces for sushi.

    Those sound really good, the filling looks like gyoza filling. I'm going to try these too, I have a package or two of nori in the cupboard right now that I'm not sure what to do with.

    Oooh, that looks delicious.

    I'm half-Japanese and grew up snacking on rice with teriyaki nori (not the kind that goes on sushi; that's usually unflavored and pretty boring on its own), but I will readily admit that Korean nori is the best nori of all. Salty, crispy, light... I eat it straight out of the package. I just need to find a brand that doesn't use terrible oils.

    You can buy the non-roasted sheets and roast them yourselves. Koreans use dark, fragrant sesame seed oil - is that Primal? You use a brush to brush on your oil on both sides of the sheet, then either cook it quickly over open flame on your gas stove, or use a hot non-stick pan. Add salt after roasting. I use scissors to but the sheets into four squares. They keep for a couple days in an airtight container.

    By the way, I'm half-Korean. This week I saw two license plates - one said HAPA-some number, and the other said HIP HAPA. Gah! I wish I had thought of that!

    the local Korean restaurant makes some awesome shredded nori that's fried and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I asked the waitress what it was called and she just said, "You're Japanese, so you like it!" and brought me more......

    I'll try the sesame seed oil thing. I liked that it got crunchy so it was easier to eat

    Yay, another hapa!

    Sesame oil is on the "acceptable" list according to Mark; my problem is just that I'm not currently near any Asian markets, so I end up buying the stuff from Trader Joe's, etc., that uses a blend of sesame oil and soybean oil. I should try roasting my own; thanks for the idea!

    Geez, even my regular, small Ontario city supermarket has 2 varieties of pure sesame oil on the shelf, as well as the blended stuff. Either with the other oils, or in the Asian foods section. Surely Chicago supermarkets would be similarly well-endowed?
