Keto Seaweed Salad – Hiyashi Wakame


Jump to Recipe

When we first started out our Facebook group, we had no idea what to expect or the direction it would grow in.  So we just let it grow organically and ended up being a great platform to get recipe inspiration from fellow members.  Today’s recipe is a product of that and we thank you for giving us the inspiration to create this Keto Seaweed Salad!!  The original request was for a seaweed salad that you often find in sushi restaurants, however we ended up taking elements from all kinds of seaweed salad creating a hybrid version!  The flavors are inspired by sushi restaurant seaweed salads but the texture is from wakame (the kind of seaweed often found in miso soup).  The end results reminds me of the seaweed salad offered at Nobu!  So next time you are in the mood from something aside your mundane mixed green salad, give this exciting infused seaweed salad with a sweet zesty dressing a go!

This dish as pictured is low-carb/keto friendly at ~1g per serving and pairs very well with many Japanese cuisines!  Seaweed is also great because it boasts many health benefits including vitamin K&B, zinc, iron and antioxidants!

The ingredients you need to enjoy this salad are Rice Vinegar (can substitute with distilled white vinegar), Soy Sauce, Swerve/Monkfruit, Toasted Sesame Seed, Togarashi (can substitute with ground red pepper) and Seaweed Mix.  For the Seaweed Mix, it would be much cheaper if you can find this at your local Asian supermarket instead (we just linked the Amazon version for people that have no access to a local supermarket).  Also, make sure the Seaweed Mix you use is actually the MIX (has agar, suginori, tsunomata, etc) rather then just seaweed (wakame).  Everything else can be picked up on Amazon or a local Asian Supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!
