Who is Eating Seaweed?


Seaweed is a popular food in Korea, though I do not recall seeing much or eating it in South Korea, other than on the outside of Sushi or similar foods when I was there.  I think it was in some soups that I ate.

It has become a popular food in Australia – and I see it in many food shops.  My favourite seaweed is a little pack of around 10 small snack size sheets, that I could get from Woolworths. I confess to eating far too many!!

Usually $1 a pack - on special often for 90c

Available at Woolworths Supermarkets in the Asian Food Section

Recently I discovered another brand which is very similar in taste, and comes in packs of 8, and works out much cheaper.  Some of Woolworth’s stores have them, but I have also found them in selected Asian Supermarkets.  (Woolworth’s are cheaper.)

Roasting my own Seaweed.

Recently it occurred to me that I might be able to save more money if I roasted my own, and I found a couple of videos on YouTube which showed how to do it.  I must say, I prefer my homemade variety.  I usually have some of the larger packs of seaweed for I do make sushi occasionally, so I had some to try.

The method above uses a frypan on the stove top to roast the seaweed, and I have tried that version, but the square seaweed does not sit well in my round frypan, so I put it in a pile, pushing down on the pile, and then pop it in the oven.  Apart from making it quicker and easier, I actually prefer the roasted in oven version.

I prefer to use just Sesame Oil too.

It is regarded as a superfood because of its nutritional benefits.

I know from buying it at the supermarkets that it is an extremely popular product – but not sure if this is because of the increase in Asian population in Australia, or we Aussies have just found it.

Try it!
