Dried/instant wakame seaweedAmong seaweeds, wakame contains a comparatively high amount of calcium. It also is rich in vitamins B1, B2 and C, as well as iron and iodine, and is said to be effective as a remedy for constipation and to make hair shiny. Dried wakame must first be reconstituted in water, after which dousing it with boiling water and then dipping it in cold water will enhance the color and texture. It is used in salads, soups and simmered dishes. Instant wakame can be used straight from the package in soups and simmered dishes.
