Nori, kombu, wakame: 20 ways with seaweed

Seaweed is edible algae, a plant that grows underwater. Some is harvested and sold fresh, but most are dried.
One of the most common is nori, which has been chopped, rolled and dried into sheets used to wrap sushi. Wakame, sometimes called sea lettuce, is a green and slightly chewy seaweed and is sold fresh, dried and frozen. Dried kelp, or kombu, is an essential ingredient in Japanese dashi and is found dried in strips.
