This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here.



      It is a red algae and is generally used as a seasoning or a “sea vegetable.” Hope that helps, I had to look it up! You can probably find it at a health food store or you can Google it and find it online.

    I added 1 lime’s juice to the salad and it was great. I did the same to the fish and rubbed the salt and chipotle instead of sprinkling it on. I don’t really like chipotle but I liked this recipe. It gave it a smokey flavor.

    Does it matter which pepper is used? There are many varieties of chili peppers available.

    I may have to substitute something for the dulce leaf until I order some…”ain’t no such thang” out here in West Texas!! ;-) Any suggestions?

    • @pegrodgers – Whichever pepper you love the most. It really doesn’t matter at all.

  3. Is there anything you can substitute for the dulse leaf? I couldn’t find it at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, but I could of just looked in the wrong places!=)

    This was easy to make, very fresh and lovely. My daughter wasn’t a fan but my husband and I loved it with the turkey burgers.
