Stir-Fried Gomoku Mozuku - Video Recipe

Mozuku (Cladosiphon okamuranus) is noodle-like seaweed which is mainly produced in Okinawa. It is rich in fiber and minerals! Mozuku is usually sold frozen, so please check the freezer at Asian grocery stores. I hope it is available!!! For this recipe you need plain (non-flavored) Mozuku, so don't get the one soaked in vinegar!


This recipe won the grand prize at mozuku recipe contest!

It goes great with white rice and perfect for bento.

BTW, Gomoku (五目) means five ingredients in Japanese :)

My blog about our trip to Okinawa ;)
