If you like seaweed salad, you'll like this one, too.

We found dried hijiki at Han Ah Reum in Wheaton (12015 Georgia Ave., 301-942-5071).

Servings: 4
  • 3/4 ounce dried hijiki (sea vegetable/algae)
  • 3 cups very hot water
  • 1 small carrot, ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup kombu dashi (see related recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Combine the dried hijiki and water; allow the vegetable to rehydrate for 15 minutes. Cut the carrot into very thin strips (julienne) and then cut into short pieces. Drain the water from the hijiki.

In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the carrot and cook for a minute or two, just until its color darkens slightly. Add the kombu dashi, hijiki, sugar, mirin and soy sauce; cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the liquid evaporates. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and turn off the heat.
