Ever wondered what Gillyweed might taste like? Try this Japanese-inspired seaweed salad to serve at your next Harry Potter party or to enjoy as a side dish for your next Japanese inspired meal.
spring onions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
juice of one lemon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sesame oil
2–3 tbsp soy sauce
Prepare your ‘gillyweed’by rinsing your seaweed several times (the package recommends 3-4 times) to remove the salt.
After rinsing, soak the seaweed for about 10 minutes, then drain.
To make your dressing, mix together the garlic, lemon juice, ground ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce.
Toss the finely chopped spring onions onto the seaweed, and pour the dressing over the seaweed.
Gillyweed doesn’t need to just be a salad! Try seaweed as a dried snack or add it to soup.
