Aonori (Seaweed Flakes), 0.21 oz
Complete your okonomiyaki and takoyaki dishes with these flavorful aonori flakes! A popular seasoning in Japan, these flavorful seaweed flakes are made with 100% aonori without any food additives. Aonori is a green algae containing plenty of fiber, carotene, minerals, and vitamins. It exhibits a milder and less bitter flavor than aosa, which is a similar type of seaweed vastly used in snacks and processed foods. This premium brand of aonori is enjoyed for its smooth texture and uniform, dark green color, as well as the lightly smoky and rich briny aroma that adds great umami to many Japanese dishes.
Simply sprinkle this aonori flakes over any dishes that you'd like to add a subtle hint of umami. The savory seaweed elevates dishes such as okonomiyaki and takoyaki. It can also complement salads, soups and many other Japanese dishes such as yakisoba, natto, donburi (rice bowl dish) and fried rice. It is also a flavorful garnish to add to Japanese fusion dishes such as wafu (Japanese-style) pasta or pizza. Try using some in vegetable or seafood stews, as part of a marinade for fish, and with shrimp stir-fry dishes. You can also blend the aonori with other seasonings to make delicious spice blends and flavor combinations.
