Seaweed Compound Butter
Contributed by Atlantic Holdfast, a small company working to sustainably hand-harvest high quality sea vegetables from the Gulf of Maine. Their harvesting operation is based on a remote island in outer Penboscot Bay, 7 miles off Stonington, where the strong currents, active surf, and full exposure to the open ocean have allowed these seaweeds to thrive for millenia.
2-3 tablespoons kelp (or dulse) flakes
1 stick butter
- In a skillet or oven, roast the kelp on low heat until crisp.
- Process into flakes with an electric coffee grinder.
- Cut butter into small slices and blend thoroughly with seaweed flakes using a stiff spoon or other available kitchen implement.
