Nori is one of the most popular ingredients in Japanese cuisine. It’s used for wrapping sushi, added to soups, stews, and noodles to add a delicious smoky flavour, and even toasted to create a fantastic (and very more-ish) snack.

Did you know? Nori was originally consumed as a luxury food item by samurais in ancient Japan?
