Wakame seaweed salad

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

  • 20 gm dried wakame (see note)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 1-2 tsp chilli powder or chilli flakes, to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar
01   Soak dried wakame in tepid water for 10-20 minutes to reconstitute. Drain and trim tough central spine, if any, of the wakame, blanch in hot water to soften and refresh in cold water to improve colour. Wrap wakame in absorbent paper to extract moisture, then coarsely chop.
02   Combine wakame in a bowl and mix in vinegar, soy, chilli, sesame seeds and sugar and serve immediately.

Note Dried wakame is available from Asian grocery stores and select health food shops. This salad goes particularly well with chilled tossed noodles.
