Dulse is prepared quickly and easily in a variety of ways:
Snacks – Naturally tender and tasty, try dulse as a snack right out of the bag anytime or drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on your dulse for a heart healthy snack.
Salads – Tear or scissor snip into bite size pieces. Add to salad (garden, Waldorf, Caesar, Greek) and let sit for a few minutes to tenderize.
Soups – Check for occasional (rare) tiny hidden pebbles or shells in the leaves – no other prep needed! Add about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup per serving. Cooks immediately, turns a lighter color. Try in chowder, minestrone and bouillabaisse. Reduces use of table salt.
Sandwiches – Adds unique seafood flavor and extra nutrition to any sandwich. Pan–fry or bake a few minutes and replace bacon in a BLT. Spice up Reubens and Subs. Add "as is" to moist sandwiches, rinse lightly and add to a dry sandwich.
Stir-fries – Great with tofu or tempeh, also with most other seafood. Complements most veggies. Reduces use of salt and/or soy in stirfries. Add just before serving to retain deep red color.
Marinate – Soak dulse in your favorite dressing (or simply lemon juice or vinegar) for a zesty taste.
If you prefer even more tender and less “salty” dulse, lightly rinse before use.
