Hijiki is a type of seaweed that is used most often as a side dish. After the seaweed has been harvested, it is dried and then cooked with soy sauce and sugar to create a delicious, slightly sweet snack. The small, thin strips of hijiki seaweed look like grass and match the kanji characters used to write it in Japanese as deer tail grass. Hijiki is rich in minerals, such as iron, calcium and magnesium and is said in Japan to be a great way to keep hair thick and lustrous.

How it is used:

• Side Dish
Most commonly served as a side dish, hijiki is cooked in soy sauce and sugar to make a tasty food that can be eaten on the side, or served with rice. In Japan, you will often get a bowl of hijiki mixed with carrots and edamame beans as an appetiser in izakaya drinking bars.
