Seaweed means pleasure
Depending on its use, seaweed can be a vegetable or a condiment. Each species of seaweed is different and is enjoyed for its:
- Taste: whether tender, crunchy or fondant, seaweed provides a unique taste. The taste varies from species to species but all are a real treat for your taste buds.
- Smell: its fresh and iodized smell brings you the smell of ocean spray and really reveals the world of sea-vegetables.
- Visual: Red, brown or green, seaweed is a whole palette of colours, adding a touch of cheerfulness to your plate.
The texture properties of seaweed (it gels and thickens) allows for consistency and volume when cooking, with the added benefit of being very low in calories.
