Any good recipes with seaweed

I picked up some seaweed at a Japenese store. It just says dried seaweed on the package. I tried making some soup I found - but I didn't like it that much. It wasn't so much that I didn't like the seaweed - it was just everything put together plus I used beef broth in cans which probably made it even worse.

anyone have any seaweed recipes? Any TNT ones?

You can put seaweed in Miso soup (found already prepared at the Japanese market) or...

...you can make a popular Wakame salad by soaking about 3/4 ounce of the dried seaweed for about 20 min, cut off any hard stem parts, and chop it up. Pour a dressing on it made of 3 Tblsp Rice vinegar and 1Tbsp sugar (or less), and 2 Tbsp soy sauce (or less). Sprinkle sesame seeds and red pepper flakes on top and... 楽しみなさい (...that says ENJOY)

i love seaweed eggdrop soup! or hot and sour soup with seaweed. just make the soup, and toss in the dried seaweed until it reconstitutes.

another seaweed fave is something called a mountain and sea salad. reconstitute the seaweed in a little hot chicken broth, then toss with stir fried mushrooms (button, straw, crimini, wood ear), garlic, soy sauce, and ginger.

serve over chopped romaine lettuce with a ginger viniagrette dressing.

Make some miso soup. The broth is made with a combination of seaweed and fish.

I looked up miso soup - lot of ingredients I don't have and I don't see any that actually have fish in it. I see some fish flakes of some sort. I'm going to keep looking around. I do have a seaweed salad I'd like to try.

Here's my recipe for miso soup. I modified a Food Network recipe. The dashi (broth) is a combination of seaweed and dried fish flakes.

Dashi:
6 C Water
Pkg Seaweed (konbi seaweed)

1 Tb Hon Dashi (Dried bonito flakes)

Soup:
5 C Dashi
2 Tb Brown Miso Paste
2 Tb White Miso Paste
6 Oz Firm Tofu, inch cubes
2 Scallions, thinly sliced
2 Tb Aji Mirin (sweet rice wine), optional

For the Dashi:
In a saucepan, combine the water and seaweed. Bring it to a simmer, uncovered, over medium heat. Remove the seaweed and discard.

Bring the liquid to a boil, add the hon dashi and immediately remove the pan from the heat. Allow the dashi to sit undisturbed for 2 minutes.

For the Soup:
In a saucepan heat the dashi and whisk in the miso pastes. Bring to a simmer and add the tofu, scallions, and mirin, if used. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.

This is kombu

Kombu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I use it in soups and stews.

The sushi wrapper seaweed (nori) i like for sushi or chiffonade it for salads. They also sell it in teryaki and regular flavor in little packs for snacking on like chips.
