Aosa is also known as hitoegusa or sea lettuce in English. Its soft texture and aroma make it so versatile that you can enjoy it with any type of dish. In Japan, it is commonly consumed with miso soup, tempura, vinegared dishes, and onigiri rice balls.
This Aosa specifically is harvested in Kagoshima prefecture, located on Kyushu Island in the Southern Region of Japan. Kagoshima specifically is famous for producing some of the tastiest and most aromatic Aosa in Japan.
Before consumption, make sure to rehydrate the aosa seaweed.
Aosa is very delicate: it is vulnerable to heat, humidity, and light, so be sure to store it in the refrigerator.
While Aosa is commonly added into miso soup, it is a versatile ingredient that can be added into many different kinds of dishes. Feel free to get creative in the kitchen and add aosa into your favorite dishes.
