Roasted Seaweed Snack Ideas

Need some ideas on what to do with Roasted Seaweed? Tracy Benjamin from Shutterbean shares her favorite Roasted Seaweed Snack ideas!

After staying at home with my little family for almost six months, I’ve turned into quite a snack master.  How about you?

My goal is always to give Cooper a well-rounded diet, and as a picky eater, I am so glad he loves roasted seaweed snacks. It’s an easy way to get vitamins and minerals into his growing body! 

Today I’ve partnered with gimMe Snacks (our favorite brand of seaweed snacks!) to show you some of our favorite Roasted Seaweed Snack Ideas.

Here are a few of our favorites from their line of premium roasted seaweed snacks:

Cooper’s favorite is the Teriyaki flavor. I’m partial to the seaweed roasted in avocado oil.

They are all lightly roasted and crisped to perfection.  So much flavor for an organic (sea) vegetable!

You can eat them on their own like this- in their convenient snack-sized sheets.

Or if you’d like to use it as an ingredient to add flavor to snacks, chop it up with a mini food processor or chop finely with a knife.

Let’s get into some additional ways to use the roasted seaweed. 

Have you ever tried it on popcorn? You should if you haven’t because it’s delicious.

Seaweed + Popcorn

Sprinkle crumbled seaweed on hot popcorn with a little salt. It adds a great depth of flavor!

It’s a great addition to movie night or happy hour.

Seaweed + Sesame Guacamole

You can use the seaweed snacks as chips! Here they are paired with my sesame guacamole. 

Double up on the seaweed for extra crunch. 

Seaweed + Hard-boiled Egg

Want to fancy up a hard-boiled egg? Crumble seaweed on top, drizzle a little soy sauce and sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds.


Edamame Avocado Salad with Seaweed

A snack that can be turned into lunch if you want. Mix edamame and avocado with some soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, seaweed, and toasted sesame seeds. Adjust taste to your liking.

The seaweed makes it taste like sushi!  You can take a few sheets of the seaweed and place a bit of the salad on to make a makeshift sushi roll.

Crispy Wonton Seaweed Chips

This snack is pretty simple if you’re experienced with frying things. All of you have to do is take one egg white and brush it on top of a wonton wrapper sheet. Then you place seaweed on top and brush on a little more egg wash to make sure it sticks. Fry them in a pot with vegetable oil on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. Serve with a little salt. They pair well with the sesame guacamole. Warning- they are slightly ADDICTIVE.

    I add chopped seaweed snacks to chickpea salad to make fake tuna (I’m a vegetarian). It is the secret ingredient to give it a fishy taste – I LOVE it!

  • stacie

    also good with smoked salmon and hot sauce. Tho I think I got that idea from you!

  • Sabrina

    In Hawaii we eat it with white rice and poke – creating mini sushi rolls – YUMMY

  • Jeanne

    Mini rice balls or spam musubi bites!

  • Sina

    These sound all so delicious! I love seaweed!

    But it seems like a lot of packaging and plastic 🙁 That’s a problem I have with so much organic food. I would expect especially these companies to be more focused on an environmentally friendly packaging.
    Did you find anything out about the packaging and how the company approaches this issue?

      Hi Sina, We are so glad to hear you love seaweed! And yes – we are actually working on a seaweed snack product with less plastic! We piloted a trayless seaweed snack at Whole Foods Market and it will be available to purchase till the end of September. We hope to launch the product nationwide and hope we can work together to ensure our healthy snacks are not only good for our bodies, but for our earth! Thanks!

    […] I also made a simple edamame & avocado salad from my roasted seaweed snack post.  […]

  • Jennifer

    I take nori, add a piece of Krab on top, some wasabi, soy sauce over the plate of them, and sprinkle with sesame seeds for a mini faux sushi and fast protein rich snack!

    Will they still be good after expired.

  • Glen Dale

    Roasted seaweed snacks are absolutely delicious! I love how they provide that perfect balance of crispy texture and savory flavor. One creative idea I’ve tried is using them as a crunchy topping for salads or grain bowls. It adds an irresistible umami kick! Another fun way to enjoy them is by rolling sushi with roasted seaweed as a wrapper, creating a unique twist on traditional sushi rolls. The possibilities are endless with these versatile and healthy snacks. Can’t wait to hear what other amazing ideas people have for enjoying roasted seaweed!

    Or make the packaging reusable.
