Aonori

Green Nori Flakes

Aonori is a variety of aromatic seaweed used as a garnish or for seasoning in many Japanese dishes, usually sprinkled in dried flake form over hot food such as yakisoba (fried noodles), o-konomiyaki (savoury pancake), or added to tempura batter. Protein rich, it also contains beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium and amino acids. Aonori occurs naturally in the calm, warm water of the bays of the south of Japan, where its cultivation is a major industry.
