How do I enjoy Shony seaweed?

Shony on boiled egg and fried egg

Our customers love to liberally shake Shony on their eggs at breakfast.

Try Shony as a seasoning. Sprinkle it generously on salads to bring out lighter flavours; use it like dried herbs to make a rub for chicken or pork; or stir Shony through soft butter or oil, coat fish and bake.

Shony also works in baking and desserts, such as this crumble recipe from Paul Hollywood.
