Simple Asian Seaweed Salad with Wakame

Simple Asian Seaweed Salad with Wakame

A simple and very quick Asian seaweed salad with wakame which you can make at home. Great flavours and colour as a result of the dressing.

Serves 2

Prep time 15 -20 minutes


  • 15g dried wakame fronds
  • 2 tsp roasted white sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce or tamari
  • 1 tsp sweet chilli sauce or finely chopped chilli peppers


  1. Soak the wakame in warm water for 5 minutes. Drain well by squeezing and chop fine. Transfer to a serving plate.
  2. In a bowl mix together the liquid ingredients. Drizzle the dressing over the seaweed and combine.
  3. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  4. Serve immediately.

Tip:  It's best is to mix in the dressing close to serving time because the vinegar will eventually discolour the seaweed.
