How Does Famous Seaweed Soup Taste?

It depends on the chef. Famous Seaweed Soup is a recipe that allows substitutions. Many ingredients are seasonal. A winter beach walk offers sparse options whereby the summer and fall beaches teem with an abundance of choices. It also depends on how briny the chef likes Famous Seaweed Soup. How long have the snails seeped in the concoction before being sent home? How long did the clam bits dry in the sun? Is the chef heavy handed with pungent seaweed? There are so many variables.  😉

My young readers often asked if the family in the book really ate Famous Seaweed Soup? A chorus of “EEWW” always followed the question. I replied with a question. “Does your mom really eat your backyard mud pies?”

Someone points out the family is pretending. They are playing together. Everyone usually agrees, but there is always one child who wildly raises a hand and announces that a baby brother, dog, or best friend, who was peered-pressured by a double-dare, ate mud pies. There is always one. 

I am sure variations of Famous Seaweed Soup has been licked, sipped, or gulped on a double dare. The question remains—How does Famous Seaweed Soup taste? 

Do you have an idea on how to make your Famous Seaweed Soup edible? Please share.

  1. Hi, Antoinette – I believe in Seaweed Soup. It is very real to me.
    Here’s one set of ingredients to make Seawood Soup edible:
    15 g / 0.5 ounces dried seaweed
    120 g / 4.2 ounces round steak, sliced into smaller pieces
    1 Tbsp sesame oil
    1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
    5 cups water
    Salt and Pepper
    I am sure that there are many more versions. 😀
