In the Western world, with the exception of a few Celtic and Norse communities, most of us have neglected the culinary delights of plants harvested from the sea shore. Seaweed is fairly mainstream in Japanese and oriental cuisine – sushi wraps, flavourings, thickeners, etc. Scientific tests show seaweeds are chock full of good things and, barring any concerns about ocean pollution, would make a healthy and tasty addition to people's diets. The website www.justseaweed.co.uk will help you identify different seaweeds if you are foraging for yourself – or sell you packets of the stuff if you can't make it to the sea shore. Seaweed generally stores well (the dried stuff for around two years) and tastes great, adds interesting textures to food – and no, it doesn't taste fishy! Seaweeds are also used in beauty spas for fancy baths – why pay $100 for a spa bath when you can get some baldderwrack from the beach, or buy some for $10 and indulge yourself at home? (Haven't tried this myself as I am well beyond any benefit from beauty treatments, but the wife and daughters might have fun…) They supply top Michelin star restaurants, celebrity chefs and private customers from the business on the Isle of Bute off the spectacular west coast of Scotland. Worth a visit even if you don't want to eat the seaweed!See positive reviews
