Nori Seaweed Recipes

Updated on June 3, 2009

Nori Seaweed

Among all available edible seaweeds, nori seaweed sheets happen to be the most accessible. They aren't in just Asian stores anymore, or even health food stores. Regular supermarkets or groceries have them now, too!

(Just saw these sheets at our town's supermarket and I was shocked!)

So, since nori sheets abound, thought I'd come up with a lens on nori seaweed recipes.

      I like seaweed, not just nori but so far any I have tasted. I think kelp and dulse are great, I also like wakame.
