Named Goma Wakame in Japanese, Seaweed Salad is a refreshing, low-calorie combo of seaweed and other Asian ingredients. Sesame, Kikurage (or 'wood ear') mushrooms and red peppers bring a savory-sweet kick to the salad, while agar agar holds it together with smooth texture and gloss.
This Japanese sesame seaweed salad is an original creation of Azuma Foods, who specialize in the "assimilation of food culture" by mixing traditional Japanese cuisine with the world's many food traditions.
Eat it plain, with chopsticks or as a fork. Alternatively, use it as a side-dish for a fancy home dinner, as a topping for sushi and other appetizers, or simply add it to dishes like stuffed tomatoes for extra color and flavor.
