The recipes on this page focus on the seaweed species currently farmed in Maine:

  • Alaria, aka wakame (Alaria esculenta)
  • Sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima)

We've also included several handy kitchen cards that provide basic info if you happen to be working with fresh kelp (as opposed to the more typical dried format). There are directions on how to blanch, freeze, dry, and pickle fresh seaweed.

There are loads more recipes in the Links section, which cover a much wider range of Maine seaweeds.
