Dried Seaweed

Dried seaweed has to be soaked in water before cooking and it increases considerably in weight after soaking (see attached document).

Use cold water and a pinch of salt to soak seaweed. It's important to let the seaweed soak for the right amount of time; too long and it would lose its texture.

When cooking a recipe with lots of water, such as stews or soups, dried seaweed can be incorporated directly, since it soaks at the same time as it cooks.

The water used to soak seaweed can also be used to cook and flavor other dishes.

Brand:

Porto Muiños bases its success on the analysis and research of the organoleptic qualities of seaweed. It also studies many other delicacies from Galician Sea, always searching out new flavors and textures: dried seaweed, seaweed tartare, seaweed noodles, and seaweed herbal teas. Enjoy this garden of the sea in the most diverse formats.

Where does seaweed grow and how is it harvested?

The seaweed from PORTO-MUÍÑOS grows on rocks covered by the cold, clean water of the Atlantic Ocean. The harvesting is done by divers, who select and cut the best specimens in the most appropriate season for each species. The seaweed is then processed immediately.
