How to use Applewood Smoked Dulse

Mara's award-winning gently Smoked Dulse seaweed is a smouldering umami powder with a hint of the sea. Choose it as a simple and effective way to add savouriness to dishes.

Adding meatiness

Make meat dishes more mouth-watering: try lightly coating lamb chops in flour and Smoked Dulse or combining it with mince to make the ultimate burger.

Many chefs love the idea of adding meatiness to their vegetarian dishes too. One chef with a ramen shop expressed interest in using Applewood Smoked Dulse as a way to boost a vegetarian ramen he always felt was lacking that lip-smacking flavour.

Enhancing dairy

Mix Applewood Smoked Dulse into mayonnaise or use it to make tartar sauce. Enjoy as a dip for fries or spread in club sandwiches, steak baguettes and BLTs.
