I Sea Bacon is a 100% wild, organic seaweed that turns into (green) bacon when you fry it. It is organic, gluten free, low carb, vegan friendly and highly sustainable.
Put it on anything that deserves a crunchy, salty, smoky kick. Or use the soft leaves as a flavor boost in salads, pastas or anything else. We’ve decided to create one of the recipes which was suggested through their website: I seasar salad (got to love their play on words)
– 500 g romane hearts, leaves separated, washed and dried
– 4 salmon fillets with skin on (about 150 g each)
– 2 teaspoons maple syrup
– 2/3 teaspoon salt
– Black pepper
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil (replace with olive oil)
1. Wash and dry the salmon fillets and marinate with maple syrup, salt and pepper
2.Cook the salmon, without touching it, until the lighter-colored flesh has moved about 3/4 of the way up the fillets, for about 5–7 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fillets)
3. Heat a pan, add the coconut oil and fry the bacon while stirring with a wooden spoon
4. Add the dressing to the romane leaves and toss with your fingers
As mentioned above, when cooked it turns green, it becomes more crispier, but can also be eaten as it is. We personally enjoyed it better cooked, as we enjoyed the crunch texture in this dish.
My sister on the other hand, who is a complete seaweed lover and anything salty in fact, enjoy it as it is and even on it’s own as a snack. They are super salty, which is why it would be best with dishes that need that extra kick!
