Dried Suji Aonori, 0.24 oz
This naturally dehydrated seaweed exhibits a delightful ocean aroma, vibrant green color, delicate mouthfeel, and it will easily jazz up your dishes. It was developed through innovative technologies and committed efforts by aspiring visionaries to achieve a sustainable lifestyle using the power of sea vegetables. The development team successfully collected seeds of “suji aonori” seaweed, one of the most aromatic kinds, grown in the ocean around Japan, and germinated them into seedlings in the lab. Then the seedlings are cultured in land-based circular pools filled with pure, mineral-rich underground seawater. This aqua-culture system enables stable water temperatures and optimal sunlight absorption, accelerating growth throughout the year. This ensures the production of the highest quality seaweed while minimizing any impact on the environment. Extremely aromatic and with bright green color, Dried Suji Aonori is a great garnish for sushi, salad, cold appetizers, noodle soup, toast, and pizza. It can be perfect mix-ins for dressings and sauces as well. Also, wild suji aonori is rarely available in the market, but thanks to this aqua-cultured Dried Suji Aonori, now you can enjoy suji aonori all year round.
You can enjoy Dried Suji Aomori’s beautiful aroma and vibrant color when you use it as-is for toppings—it can be a great, eye-catching garnish for sushi, salad, carpaccio, donburi rice bowls, toast, pizza, bruschetta, omelets, grilled dishes and soup. It’s easily affected by high heat, so it’s best used at the last step of cooking or right before serving. If you arrange it on top of piping hot noodle soup at the end, you can appreciate its aroma to the fullest and its melting texture as you sip. The dehydrated seaweed is so delicate that you can easily crush it by hand into a powder. Then you can mix it into mayonnaise, dressings, or sauces, or dust potato chips and popcorn with it. It’s a perfect sauce ingredient for seafood pasta, or if you add it to mushroom pasta or risotto, you can enjoy a wonderful marriage of surf and turf ingredients.
