Maple Infused Seaweed Salad

I mentioned last week that Kirk and decided that fancy occasions weren’t needed to enjoy a pairing dinner at home. We did this for the first time on Valentine’s Day this year and it’s something we talk about a lot. Since we love to cook and love to eat, why wait until the next holiday?

Maple Infused Seaweed Salad
Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 2
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Braggs
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • ⅛ teaspoon maple extract
  • 2 teaspoons arame
  • 1 teaspoon wakame
  1. Rehydrate Arame & Wakame according to package directions. Lightly chop together.
  2. Combine Bragg's, Agave, and maple Syrup. Top rehydrated seaweeds with mixture and divide between two chinese soup spoons. Top with sliced roasted garlic.

See those shot glasses in the background? Those are a very simple drink that pairs so well with the seaweed salad. Make sure you choose a high quality tequila, because this is a sipping drink (not a shooter!).

And that wrapped up the first course of the evening! Three more courses and recipes to share with you from this fun night of food. :)


Questions for you:

  • Do you love to cook or would you rather go out for dinners?
  • When was the last time you did something special for no reason?
  • Tequila – good or bad?

      Totally agree! Most holidays are made up anyway (Valentine’s Day?!) so I think we should be able to create on our on the spur of a moment too. 😉

    It’s possible to sip tequila? Haha, clearly I’ve never had the good stuff ;D And yes, I can demolish a whole bulb of roasted garlic. I love seaweed salad, I have this saved to make soon! I only have wakame on hand, but nothing wrong with a single-weed salad :) Love your fancy dinner/date night idea–and the menu!
