Known as kizami nori in Japan, fine cut nori is a versatile condiment to use in a wide range of dishes.
Clearspring Fine Cut Nori is made from the finest toasted nori sheets. Made by the same producer as the sushi nori sheets, it has a delicious nutty flavour and dark, shiny green colour. It makes a perfect garnish for anything from rice to noodles, pasta or salad. Simply sprinkle it on just before serving as no preparation is required.
In Japan it is often used for chilled soba noodles or mixed with other ingredients such as sesame to make a delicious condiment (furikake).

Clearspring Nori sea vegetable is farmed and produced using traditional methods in Kyushu, Japan. While some varieties of sea vegetables such as hijiki, arame and dulse are harvested from the wild using sustainable practices, others such as nori are extensively cultivated in Japan and other East Asian countries.
Although originally gathered wild, nori has been cultivated in Japan for over 300 years. Nets made of woven rope impregnated with nori spores are suspended each year between long bamboo poles set deep into the calm, shallow bays. The height of each net is carefully set so that it remains above the water level during low tide, giving the growing nori maximum sunlight, but below the water level, so the plants receive a regular washing, at high tide.
During the colder months, the delicate nori plants will grow until they cover the entire net. In late winter they are harvested and brought ashore, where they are washed, cut, made into thin sheets and dried.
With its unmistakable flavour Nori makes a delicious but also nutritious addition to everyday meals and snacks:
