  • you mean kelp noodles?

  • No, - according to this they are different than kelp noodles:

    sea spaghetti is Himanthalia Elongata incase anyone is interested.

     

  • what do they taste like. I read on the website that after soaked they are like al dente pasta. If they have a good or neutral taste, they could have a lot of potential. I eat kelp noodles like crazy, but I really only like them with asian flavored sauces.

  • They were pretty good. They don't taste like pasta for sure. But, I imagine no sea vegetable does. The flavor is neutral. The texture is slightly chewy but not tough. I'd say tender.

    Here's Sirova's take:

    Taste

    Sea spaghetti are no different from other types of seaweed, with a pleasant, fresh taste of the sea. Rinsing will help remove much of the salty flavor, yielding a milder noodle.

    Sea spaghetti is delightful in a cashew based tomato-cream sauce with crushed red pepper, or in a fra diavolo-type sauce rich in fresh tomatoes, garlic and parsley. No shrimps needed here! Creamy pesto sauces are also delightful tossed with soft, long stranded sea spaghetti.

  • Thank you! I'm going to order some.
