First-harvest nori seaweed with organic olive oil from Sicily and natural sea salt from Guérande.
These nori crisps can be eaten wrapped around rice or salad, or simply as a snack. They also go very well with beer and white wine.
Good to know: first-crop nori, known as ‘hatsuzumi’ or ‘ichibanzumi’, is a young seaweed characterised by its softness and melt-in-the-mouth texture.
These crisps derive from a habit of nori fishermen in the Ariake Sea in Saga, who used to eat the imperfect nori that could not be marketed by cooking it with oil and salt on the beach.
Founded in 1949 in Hiroshima, Mikuniya has a passion for nori seaweed in all its aspects, from its colour and luster to its taste, smell and texture, all of which are the result of careful selection that allows the shop to assure its customers of lasting quality and to perpetuate the pride of the Hiroshima region, one of the oldest producers of nori seaweed.
