Grass Kelp seaweed sustainably hand harvested from the UK coast. Also known as Gutweed or Mermaids Hair (Ulva intestinalis). Part of our “Sea Herb” range and our way of introducing you to cooking with seaweed.

20g sachet.


Ingredients: Dried Grass Kelp seaweed.

Allergens: Cannot guarantee crustacean or mollusc free.

Storage: This product is supplied ambient. Store in a cool dry place and best to use within a year. Once opened we recommend that you use within 28 days.


What is it?

Grass kelp is sustainably harvested from UK shores and then washed several times to remove all the sand, molluscs, and any crustaceans. It is then slowly dried over 12 hours and then for the last hour is toasted to maximise the flavour. The Grass Kelp is then blended into smaller flakes and sealed into our sea herbs pouch to preserve the flavour and be a convenient addition to your pantry or cupboard.


What does it taste like?

Grass Kelp wins the title of ultimate seaweed taste! Before eating seaweed for the first time, if you imagine what seaweed would taste like then this seaweed lives up to those expectations. It is vibrant green colour and  brings a vibrant marine seaweed flavour to your cooking.


Nutritional Information

Grass kelp is a fantastic source of iodine and iron and magnesium. Iodine helps to make thyroid hormones, which help keep cells and the metabolic rate – the speed at which chemical reactions take place in the body healthy.

High levels of iron and magnesium help your bone health and strength and can help lower your blood pressure and health of your thyroid gland.


How to use it?

Grass Kelp is an ideal sea herb to complement any Asian cooking and it is reminiscent of the the legacy of eating crispy seaweed from the Chinese takeaway.

In high end restaurants, Grass Kelp was used after quickly deep frying and then was served drenched in soy source and a dusting of sugar. Unfortunately, the Chinese takeaway variety would most likely be deep fried cabbage, flavoured with seaweed flavouring. Nonetheless it has probably made a lasting impression on many people.

It’s a go to herb for simple stir fries, where you can pan fry diced ginger, garlic, chilli, spring onion, batons of carrot, courgettes, broccoli, cauliflower, bean sprouts cashew nuts in coconut oil and then add some freshly cooked noodles and then season it all with Grass Kelp, Salt, Pepper, Soy and Fish sauce. Serve with a dollop of peanut butter and sweet chilli sauce on the side.

Its also great in miso soups, which is a clear soup made with lots of ginger, garlic, chilli, spring onions, vegetables, fish, or meat of choice with a dash of fish sauce and soy sauce for good measure.

Grass Kelp is ideal in  Indian dishes as well, such as a kedgeree with smoked haddock, coconut milk and a sprinkle of Grass Kelp.

No one knows precisely when people in West Wales first started eating laver, some say it was first introduced as a survival food by the Vikings, while others say it goes back to the very first inhabitants of Wales. I am a betting man so I like to bet that it was the first coastal inhabitants, and I would to take a bow to the very first man or women who took that bold step into the unknown world of laver seaweed and put it on their plate....
