Before you start

You dont'need much dried seaweed for this recipe. If you are not used to the seaweed's taste and texture, you may want to halve the servings.


  1. Rinse the seaweed then put it in a bowl and soak it in at least 5 times its volume of water. Let rest about 10 min, until re-hydrated and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs for about 10 min, cool them down immediately in cold water, then set aside.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a salad bowl, except the sesame seeds.
  4. Drain and gently squeeze the seaweed to remove excess water. Chop or cut up, using scissors, then add to the salad bowl.
  5. Toss, taste and add more seasoning if necessary. Garnish with the optional sesame seeds, add the boiled eggs, quartered, then serve.


If mirin is not available, replace it with white wine and a bit of sugar.
