Seaweeds Foraging in the Shores

Who knew that the edges of the sea could be so bountiful, recently I’ve spent a lot of time over the coasts close (not really that close) to where I live investigating the abundance and potential uses that seaweeds could play in my regular day to day cooking. I must admit that I found a lot more than I first expected; from a classic deep fried crispy green seaweed (ulva) – like the stuff we usually get from the Chinese take-away, to the deep and totally unexpected flavour of the sea truffle (pepper dulse) which hits you with bags of umami and a sharp spicy note. – I imagine made in to a paste it would go perfectly with a pork loin.

There’s so much to explore with seaweeds that I almost feel a little overwhelmed – it’s something I will have to continue over the coming years…

This is the amazing truffle of the sea - unbelievable flavours are produced like this, dried and powdered its amazing in pasta, omlettes and salads or even on chips.. #seaweed #truffles #foraging #wildfood #adventure #outdoors #instachef #bushcraft #instagood #amazing #instaphoto #home #yum #raw #rawfood #paleo #food #goodfood #tasty #nomnom #tasting #wild #chefsoninstagram #cheftalk #permaculture #wellbeing #health
