Recently my son Ted and I have been buying seaweed crisps from a local health food store. We love these crisps so much that we actually disagree over the amount we have eaten. Of course, Ted normally eats most of the bag. Although, I’m sure he would tell his story differently. The seaweed crisps taste of the salty sea and it’s a flavour we really enjoy.
The other day I decided to buy seaweed flakes online. As we like the crisps so much I wondered what this ingredient would taste like in meals. Ted and I both love prawns so I thought I would try the seaweed flakes in a prawn noodle soup. It was a delicious dish and one we will definitely be eating again soon.

Slow Cooker Prawn and Seaweed Noodle Soup was very well received by my little family. My husband Howard , son Ted and I really enjoyed this dish. I liked it so much I ate it the leftovers the next day for my lunch. The broth with all the vegetables in could be made in advance of the meal and frozen. I’m not to sure about the prawns. Personally this meal is so easy to prepare and cook I normally prepare all the ingredients the night before and let this dish cook during the day. Then all I have to do is add the noodles and prawns and serve. However you decide to eat this dinner, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
