Dulse is a healthy and tasty ingredient in a wide range of foods. Add it as a vegetable/meat alternative to fish dishes, curries, stews, soups, bread, chowders and salads. It can be eaten straight from the ocean and when dried it makes an excellent on-the-move snack. Or, try deep-frying it for a few seconds. Seriously better than potato crisps!
Dulse – 20g – £2.50
Kelp is probably most well-known for the unique effect it has on the taste buds, that which the Japanese call Umami. Kelp is used to make broths and serves as a base ingredient in stocks (such as Dashi for Miso soup), soups and stews. Also makes for great crisps. Add a strip of Kelp to dried beans or pulses during the soaking process to speed up the cooking. It helps make beans much more digestible by breaking down the enzymes that cause the gassy feeling when eating beans. It also adds a subtle smoky flavour to the beans when cooked with it. Adds great taste to cooking rice too.
Kelp – 30g – £2.85
Sea Greens are the base for the famous crispy fried seaweed. However, its uses are much more varied. Eat raw in salads, lightly boil or steam for use as a vegetable, add to stir-fries or blend into smoothies and super juices.
Sea Greens – 15g – £2.50
A mix of Dulse, Sea Greens and Nori. The perfect introduction to seaweeds. In flaked form, so very easy to use. Simply sprinkle on, or in, any dish. From fish and shellfish to mashed potato, omelettes, soups, sauces, meat, sandwiches, salads and as part of your bread or pancake dough. Works great in your breakfast porridge as well.
Sea Salad – 30g – £3.25
Sea Spaghetti – just eat it raw. Straight from the bag in dried form it tastes surprisingly like biltong (beef jerky, so quite salty) and has that same awesome chewy texture. If you soak it for about 30 minutes it will swell up to 5 times its size and weight, and turns a deep earthy green. It becomes soft with a slightly crunchy texture. Lovely in salads, or to add to rice dishes after cooking.
Boil & Steam – Boil it together with your ordinary spaghetti for 5-15 minutes, or instead of! Like spaghetti, it gets softer the longer you boil it. Alternatively, steam it for 20-35 minutes until tender.
When steamed, it remains firmer than when cooked.
Stir fry – To stir fry, first soak it in tepid or cold water for up to 30 minutes until it has increased in size and becomes soft. Cut it in chunks and stir fry it for 5-10 minutes on medium heat.
Deep fry – Soak in water for 15 minutes and deep fry it until crisp, which will take a few seconds, so keep an eye on it!
Sea Spaghetti – 40g – £2.85
