Dried seaweed sheets


Gim is made from seaweed that’s been chopped and dried into thin sheets. It’s full of protein and vitamins, particularly iron, iodine, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and B12. It’s delicious as a light, healthy snack, and for wrapping with rice and vegetables.

    I need help!

    Okay, so I recently bought a pack of seaweed sheets, but was unable to use them because I could not get passed the smell (haha). I’ve never used them before. What do you suggest?

    yes, you will have to buy kim(laver) for kimbap like the one in the photo above. In the photo, it says, “kim for kimbap”(김밥용 김)

    Hi Maangchi!

    This is Amy, I just emailed you recently! Anyway, I want to make kimbap, but are there different kinds of sea plant? I don’t want to get a kind that will crack and break when I roll it? This kind you use seems thicker and more flexible?

    Thanks! See you in New York soon! :)
