This recipe can be made with kelp, grapestone, or nori. Try all three! Some people claim it even tastes like bacon!
Simply pan fry over medium high heat pieces of dried seaweed in a little oil. Take off the heat when edges just start to turn golden, usually about 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and you've got an incredible seaweed snack!
Add other seasonings as you wish- fresh or dried garlic, chili flakes, and nutritional yeast are some of our favorites. Kids love these!!
The chips can also be crumbled and sprinkled on eggs, popcorn, avocado toast, salads, noodle bowls, etc!
Maple Mermaid Bakon
Recipe by Elisabeth Deswart
at Cuesta Community College
In bowl, mix dry grapestone seaweed with enough maple syrup to coat, and add wood-smoked sea salt to taste (whatever salt you have on hand is good too).
On parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange seaweed in single layer, with space between each piece.
Dehydrate or bake at 200F or below, until crispy.
You can find maple syrup and wood-smoked sea salt in the bulk section at SLO Food Co-op
