So, what is sea lettuce?

Sea lettuce, also known as Ulva lactuca, is a bright green, leafy seaweed that grows in shallow, nutrient-rich waters around the world. It is a popular ingredient in many Asian and European cuisines, prized for its unique texture and mild, slightly salty flavor. With a delicate and crispy texture, sea lettuce is often used in salads, soups, and sushi rolls. This versatile ingredient is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including iodine, iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C, making it a nutritious addition to any meal. Whether served fresh or dried, sea lettuce adds a delicious and healthy touch to any dish.
