How to Make Fresh Wakame Seaweed Soup (미역국) - Video Recipe

Fresh Wakame seaweed is in season in spring in Japan!
My mom bought it as a souvenir.

Wakame soup is highly nutritious soup that contains a high content of calcium and iodine.

Most of the time, it is served with Yakiniku (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ). Of course it goes great with any kind of dish, especially the rice dish :)


You can blanch the fresh Wakame in boiling water (which will turn the natural brown color to the green we are familiar with) and freeze up to a year. When you use, you can just defrost at room temperature or soak in water.

There are many ways to enjoy fresh Wakame seaweed. Leaves can be used for Shabu Shabu (enjoy leaves changing color in hot water and eat with Ponzu sauce), Miso soup, salad, etc… Stems can be used for Tsukudani (simmered dish), Kinpira (stir-fried dish), etc…
