    Favorite sea vegetables?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    What is your favorite type of seaweed? Nori is always a solid choice, and I've tried dulse (tasty, but very briny) and laver (the Atlantic version of nori- so-so taste, and way too chewy and rubbery IMHO). Any other suggestions? I usually chop or crumble some into salmon or tuna, or throw some into soup.

    I wanted a snack before bed the other night, so ripped open a bag of nori sheets and ate it like a cracker, lol. It was so good I added some veggies and plain tuna to another sheet with some fresh pico de gallo and nom nommed.

    Sorry, I'm not being helpful, just had to share. I have some kelp noodles that I am dying to try and also ordered some dulse on amazon the other night after my epic snack. Sea veggies are trending hard! They're so good for you.

    I love nori and will eat dead loads of it if I'm allowed.

    I also like the crunchy seaweed salad that you get from the Japanese restaurants, but I don't know how to make it at home. I bought some dried seaweed and reconstituted it because I keep reading everywhere that you make seaweed salad with dried seaweed, but it was just a gooey black mess and tasted awful - it wasn't the brilliant green crunchy stuff that I was expecting.

    Damn, I forgot about that stuff- delicious. A quick google search for recipes does not turn up much... might have to buddy up with a local sushi chef.

    I love wakame too. I put it in my chicken soup or just in broth with some scallions. So good!!

    I'll have to give some nori a try next.

    I really like Irish Moss. I get it from Mountain Rose Herbs (link on my blog if you're interested), and it comes dried and in flakes. Very easy to mix into scrambled eggs or sprinkle into soups/stews.

    I'll also snack on some dulse if I'm in the mood for something salty. It cures salt cravings pretty quickly

    I actually JUST came home with a package of kelp sheets. I could snap/cut off "chips" of it. It's kind of good to just eat - like really chewy almost crispy, very satisfying. The taste is weird though - some bites were oddly sweet and some were insanely salty (I expected salty, but this was kind of painful). FWIW.

    SeaSnax are my heart sea green right now.
    Doesn't say what it is, just "Seaweed" - but it sure is good.

    I love Sea Snax! I just wish they didn't cost so much... over here it was like 2 bucks for one package. :/ The little nori snacks cost less, I try to find the ones with the fewest additives.
