Cooked Mehijiki

gekochte Mehijiki

Mehijiki are the fine points of hijiki seaweed that grows wild on rocky coasts in the region around Japan. Hijiki is a traditional food that is eaten for centuries in Japan. Hijiki is rich in essential minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron) and high in fiber. In Japan, it is said that hijiki, in small amounts, but regularly eating, promotes health and beauty and helps to thick, shiny hair.

The dish has the great advantage that you can have everything prepared a day in advance in order to have more time for his guests! It tastes even better when you eat it on the next day, because then the flavor is completely absorbed.

Mehijiki is usually eaten as a side dish together with fish or vegetables.
