Japanese Seaweeds

Seaweed is widely consumed in Japan, both for its incomparable iodine flavour and for its beneficial properties. Sushi, maki, miso soup, broths, salads... these sea vegetables are an essential part of Japanese cuisine, both traditionally and for the benefits they provide. Several varieties are eaten in Japan for different purposes.

Nori seaweed is best known in Europe for preparing maki and onigiri. Its iodised flavour and round mouthfeel can also be used in crumbs to season fish fillets, pasta, white rice, biscuits, etc.  Kombu has a distinctive brown colour and can be used to season dishes or to make dashi broth, revealing umami, the emblematic flavour of Japanese cuisine. A real flavour enhancer, the 'kombujime' technique refines the flesh and delicately flavours the fish with the taste of kombu. Wakame, rich in flavour and usually cut into strips, is mainly used in soups, salads or stir-fries. Umibudo in the shape of bunches of miniature grapes is a delight when seasoned with Ponzu! Our fresh seaweed salads can be eaten on their own or as a side dish - a culinary voyage guaranteed!

These different types of edible seaweed, with their many virtues, are also very low in calories and contribute to healthy cooking. In Europe, these seaweeds are usually sold dehydrated. Just a few minutes is all it takes to rehydrate them and give these jewels of the sea all their iodised, umami-packed flavour.
