How to rehydrate seaweed

Seaweed is usually sold dried so needs to be rehydrated before using in salads or garnishes


Fill a large bowl with cold water and add the seaweed
Leave for 15 minutes, then drain in a colander
Pat dry, the seaweed is now ready to use


The seaweed can be used in salads, for deep frying or as part of a larger dish. Michael Wignall's Carrots with smoked trout, mozzarella and wakame uses a dashi stock to rehydrate the seaweed.
