This lightly roasted laver, with a consistency similar to Japanese nori, is great as-is with a side of soy sauce and vinegar, used in kimbap or maki rolls, or cut into thin strips and sprinkled into soups, bibimbap or salads.
Brought by the family behind Badasoop, the seaweed expert and the sole patent holder of gamtae seaweed in South Korea, this lightly roasted laver will be your go-to next time you host a kimbap rice roll party. The consistency is similar to Japanese nori, so can be substituted into any recipe that calls for nori. Just lightly roasted over open fire, with no oil nor salt, this laver retains the full flavor and nutritional profile of the seawee. Unlike the conventional varieties found in most stores, the lightly roasted unseasoned laver is a blend of three different varieties of locally grown and harvested laver seaweeds hand-selected by family patriarch Cheolsoo Song. It is great as-is with a side of soy sauce and vinegar, used in kimbap or maki rolls, or cut into thin strips and sprinkled into soups, bibimbap or salads.
