裙帶菜 / Wakame


Wakame is a popular seaweed in Japan. It grows readily in its natural environment, but these days the majority of wakame is farmed in the sea. The picking, or harvesting season, is from spring to the beginning of summer. In Hokkaido, the best season is May. Raw wakame is found in supermarkets, and its color becomes bright green after it’s dipped into hot water then washed in cold water. Preserving it with salt or drying it is popular, and its eaten through the year. For Japanese cuisine, wakame is typically used in miso soup, and as an ingredient for dishes in sweetened vinegar, or salad.
