Korean Seaweed Salad Recipe
This seaweed salad is my first Korean recipe on Rasa Malaysia. I love Korean food and I have just started to cook Korean recipes at home.
My Korean friend gave me a bag of dried Korean seaweed or miyeok recently. Miyeok is the Korean version of seaweed and it’s thicker than Japanese seaweed called wakame.
How to Make Seaweed Salad?
Homemade seaweed salad calls for the following ingredients:

- Toasted sesame oil. Some people don’t like the fishy taste in seaweed so use toasted sesame oil generously to reduce the seaweed taste.
- Rice vinegar
- Salt and sugar
- White sesame seeds
To make seaweed salad, just mix all the seaweed with all the seasonings and marinade together. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
