Hand-harvested Australian Wakame.

Kelp is known as the superfood of the sea for good reason. It's packed with vitamins and minerals important for human health including iodine, magnesium, iron, calcium, folate and vitamins A, C, E and K.

We wild-harvest Wakame in Victorian waters as it's a very high quality kelp but also an introduced (and invasive) species here. Removing it helps our native kelp to re-establish. It's been struggling in recent times due to climate change and invasive sea urchins.

Wakame has traditionally been eaten in salad or miso soup, but can be easily added to omelettes, fritters, pasta sauce, poke, almost anything really. You can flash fry some blades for a few seconds to make delicious umami chips that you can sprinkle over all sorts of dishes. Or hydrate desired amount in water for a few minutes where it will expand by about six times the volume. Then rinse and squeeze excess water out and chop up and add it to your other ingredients for baked or fried dishes.

If you notice white deposits on some of the Wakame blades in the pack, you're in luck. This is a naturally occurring amino acid called glutamate which gives seaweed its unique umami flavour.

Take a look at our recipes page for inspiration (we'll be adding more very soon). And if you come up with a great recipe with our Wakame we'd love to hear about it!

Make friends with kelp. Good for you, me and the sea.

Note 2023 season stock is now available.
