These seaweed crackers (or nori crackers) are made from yaki sushi nori (roasted seaweed) and spring roll pastry. The making process is very simple, just stick together these 2 ingredients with some egg wash, cut into smaller pieces and fry until golden brown in hot oil.

This recipe has some white sesame seeds added to the crackers which give them a hint of sesame flavour.

Another seaweed snack is our seaweed fish strips snack, check it out.
