Struggling to know how to cook with or include seaweed in your diet? Know it’s good for you but have no clue how to combat this sea vegetable in the kitchen? These seaweed recipes are sure to help!
As an island nation we are surrounded by an abundance of wonderful sea food, including seaweed! And there are numerous edible varieties to choose from such as eggwrack, dulse and sea spaghetti. Celebrity Chef, Jamie Oliver, has accredited seaweed as a major part of his weight-loss journey, naming it ‘the most nutritious vegetable in the world’! Doctor Seaweed’s Weed & Wonderful Seaweed Infused Oils are a great way to get seaweed into your life and in a way you’ll love. Minimise preparation time that can often come with fresh or dried seaweed and simply drizzle on salads, pour into sauces, sauté and more with these delicious oils. Seaweed recipes on the website so far include:
Smokey Kale Crisps – a great healthy snack instead of crisps or chips! The smoked oil provides a great flavour plus reducing the amount of salt required to season.
Smoked Salmon Salad with a Seaweed Dressing – a fresh, summery dish with added Pure Sea goodness.
Grilled Fish with Chunky Avocado Salsa and Seaweed – add a boost of seaweed to this Mediterranean style dish, for a lighter lunch simply omit the fish and have the salsa on top of toasted bread.
Providing an Umami Boost
All our products are certified organic, kosher and suitable for vegans. Umami, one of the five tastes including sweet, sour, bitter and salty is often lacking in vegetarian and vegan meals because it is characteristic of broths and cooked meats. The oils, especially the smoked version which has been infused with naturally oak smoked Scottish seaweed (try saying that 5 times fast!) provide an incredible umami flavour, making your meal mouth-wateringly delicious! For the meat lovers out there, take your steak up a level by marinating in any of our superb oils and serve with handmade chips roasted with seaweed goodness. The possibilities are endless!
Providing the Finishing Touch to your Seaweed Recipes
As part of our range, we’ve developed an Intensely Smoked Seaweed Culinary Essence, perfect for dripping around a finished dish to add that extra oomph! Impress your friends or wow in the restaurant with wonderfully intense flavours to compliment fine dining.
