How to cook sea vegetables (Arame)

Hello guys,

I just purchased some great looking sea Vegetables. Right now I am focusing on a particular sea veggie called "Arame".

I have no experience what so ever with cooking with sea vegetables and don't even know where to start.

Do you have any tips or recepes to help me start out?

Best regards

If they are dried then you need to rehydrate them. The method and a flavoring recipe is here:

I love using sea vegetables. They are so healthy and most contain good amounts of iron and protein. :)

Here is a recipe for a quick and delicious arame salad:
  • 2 cups arame
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. tamari
  • 2 Tbs. dark sesame oil
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 4 scallions, minced
  • 1/2 cup Daikon or red radish, shredded
  • 2 Tbs. sesame seeds
Place arame in a heavy saucepan with hot water to cover. Soak arame 15 minutes. Place next 5 ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake and set aside. Drain arame and return to same saucepan. Add carrots and just enough water to almost cover carrots. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 3-4 minutes, or until carrots are just tender. Drain immediately and transfer to a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss. Shake dressing and pour over salad. Chill 30 minutes before serving.
