Stages of cooking

  1. Whether you have frozen or fresh laminaria, boil it for 15 minutes. Then rinse it well to get rid of the rest of the sand (if any).  Having done that, marinate the product by adding 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 60 ml of vinegar (6%). Mix the laminaria with the marinade and store in a fridge if needed. By the way, you can marinate the laminaria in advance not to waste time when cooking the salad.
