nori rolls

What Is Nori
 

Nori is an edible seaweed which is dried or toasted, and often sold in sheets. Nori has been consumed in Japan and China for centuries, and is an important part of Japanese cuisine especially. Most Western consumers are familiar with nori because it is used to wrap sushi, although the distinctive salty, slightly grassy flavor is also delicious eaten plain as well.  In Ireland, nori is called sloke; the Scottish call it laver.
