Seaweed Tartare

bread with avocado and seaweed tartare
This seaweed salsa is sharp, tangy and delicious. It makes a fantastic topping for avocado toast, or you could try mixing it through a warm potato salad for a real crowd-pleaser. Seaweed salsa keeps well in the fridge, and it goes with practically everything, so it’s great to have a jar or two on standby. If you often find that your flavours are a bit dull, a lack of acid is a common culprit. The pickled capers and gherkins in this recipe makes it pleasingly acidic, and you’ll find that just a couple of spoons over a rich meal like chilli really livens up the flavour of the overall dish. Reserve a couple of spoons of the pickling vinegar to loosen the salsa up, if it dries over time.
This recipe makes about 8 servings.
Cooking time: 15 minutes


2 tbsp Arctic Ocean Greens
1 tbsp capers
3 tbsp chopped gherkins
1 small red onion
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce


Soak the Arctic Ocean Greens in water for 10 minutes.
Finely chop the capers, gherkins, onion and garlic.
Strain the seaweed and mix well with all the other ingredients.
Serve and enjoy!
