Seaweed is becoming an increasingly popular food. Recently we found a local health food store selling packets of seaweed crisps. My husband Howard, son Ted and I really enjoy these crisps. In the past few months I have been learning about seaweed. Seaweed has amazing health benefits.
Firstly, it has the best source iodine which can help to support your thyroid. Plus it contains other vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin K, B vitamins, zinc, and iron. It also contains antioxidants that can help protect your cells from damage. However, too much iodine from seaweed could harm your thyroid function. For optimum health benefits, enjoy this ancient ingredient in regular but small amounts. As we love it so much I decided to put it into a curry and it was so tasty. It was a dinner that we had to share with you.

Slow Cooker Salmon and Seaweed Curry was a hit with my little family. Ted and I love seafood so we always love salmon dinners. Howard isn’t so keen but he doesn’t mind salmon. Thankfully this was a meal we all enjoyed and I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. It was as yummy as the night before. All the ingredients in this dish are freezable so you could cook a large batch. Then freeze the batch for another occasion. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
