Taste of the Sea
Move over, multivitamins: Seaweed â€” like the kind hand-harvested from the chilly waters of Maine â€” can also offer a healthful dose of calcium, iodine, and folate. And when stirred into soups, shredded over rice, or mixed with roasted veggies, Maine Seaweedâ€™s low-impact kelp and alaria add depth and umami to your plate, as well. Locally, chef Susan Regis of UpStairs on the Square seasons the leaves with house-made orange oil, soy sauce, and rice wine before tossing them with garlic-roasted eggplant. For a light, fresh summer meal at home, simply marinate a few sheets, then chop and sprinkle over freshly grilled fish.
