This product arrived with 50 large sheets of Nori. The Nori is not flimsy like the supermarket variety. It is so much thicker, which will allow me as a beginner sushi maker (yes my husband and I took a class on how to make sushi but have not perfected it yet!) to more easily be successful at making California and hand rolls.
I reviewed this product as a snack. I liked the saltiness of it and it satisfied any cravings I had during the day for potato sticks or for something salty like pretzels. I ate two sheets and was happy happy happy. I also hate to admit I smeared tahini with ginger on one side, rolled it up and dipped it in walnut oil. It was delicious! Don't knock it, 'til you try it.....
On to my next review testing idea. This seaweed was perfect for snipping with a kitchen scissor into a bowl of soup. Cut or rip small pieces and use instead of croutons. Not just tasty - but good for you too. Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Calcium, Vitamin C and Iron and Protein in each sheet. There is no trans fat and no saturated fat. I am a fan of saturated fat, so even though there is none in this product, I can envision adding it to something that has saturated fat (like cheese, splash of olive oil on top a bowl of soup. And so, this is the perfect accompaniment for soup, salad and many many other dishes.
Call me crazy, but I was snacking on a sheet of One Organic Roasted Seaweed Sushi Nori and my dog started jumping up on me and begging for some. Why not, right? I give my cats and dog kelp in their food every now and then. It's good for them. So I pulled off a piece and gave it to her. She begged for more and more and more. I am sure the manufacturers did not have dog treats in mind when they manufactured this product. But, hey, why not?
Another nice touch is the subtle lines impressed on each sheet. I have to believe these lines would be good for cutting evenly or for a guide to fill for a sushi roll. I always notice the little touches that make a product unique. And so I appreciated the line guides.
Lastly, don't be dissuaded to purchase this nori because you fear the roasted flavor will take center stage and detract from the flavors of your sushi (I have never found roasted nori sheets in my local grocery store but just plain nori). The roasted flavor is subtle and the saltiness is not overpowering. I have tasted roasted salted seaweed which made me want to drink a river! I did not like the fact that my lips puckered afterward and the roasted flavor burned my taste buds. You will enjoy this subtle roasted flavor. It is so delicious.
There is no reason not to buy this product - today - on Amazon. Oh, also USDA Organic and a low calorie Superfood. I recommend One Organic Roasted Seaweed Sushi Nori. I have nothing but raves to report! There is no excuse not to try making sushi as the manufacturer has provided you the handy dandy "how-to" illustration above ;).
