Seaweeds
Several Asian cousines staples, I grew up enjoying several varieties - konbu, nori, wakame, hijiki.

Any of you like sushi?  For myself, the best way to enjoy smoked trout is with sticky rice rolled up in or mounded on bite size seaweed - this my favorite:

Pickled ginger & kimchi on the side.  YUM !

RE: Seaweeds
I love wakame. I'll eat that stuff straight. We use it as a garnish for a dish where I work.

Last year we started assembling out own sushi. So we have nori in stock as well.
Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!

I like nori seaweed with my miso soup.

RE: Seaweeds
Nori is tasty in soup but melts into mush. Wakame doesn't - soak for a few minutes in water till it fluffs up soft and add - no need to cook. A little goes a LONG way

Warning: Not sure when, but the Hawaii mainstay Shirakiku brand I use is now sourced from China and the package has a CA warning label about possible harmful chemical ingredients? Dunno, I think ALL ocean harvest food may be suspect.

RE: Seaweeds
Just made a batch of wakame marinade for Hawaii-Asian taste:
3 parts sugar (organic Florida Crystals from Walmart)
2 parts rice vinegar (Mitsukan-Mizkan brand inexpensive at Walmart)
1 part shoyu (organic Ohsawa brand thru Amazon.com)
blenderize peeled chopped ginger with 1 or more parts water to taste and combine with above. Straining out pulp is optional.

I use the most healthful and tasty (& pricey) ingredients, but many may be satisfied with lesser.

Few hours soak and its ready to eat, but since this is a pickling mixture will keep for quite a long time in the frig.

About once a month I eat Sushi and enjoy whatever they serve me

I don't do anything organic - need those preservatives LoL
