Facts on Nori -

This seaweed is thin,  and its oily iridescence reflects the colours of the rainbow. This is the most popular Seaweed for eating, both historically and today. We mostly know it from eating Maki Sushi.

Nori is high in protein, contains carbohydrates and almost no fat. It is rich in vitamins A, B2, niacin, B12, plus C and D.

    Great recipe, I personally don’t digest raw onion very well so I omitted it and added in cucumber which was lovely. The salad has a really subtle nutty flavour.
