View Full Version : how to use nore
11-09-2006, 04:46 PM
I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to use nori sheets. Whenever I try to use it to wrap it breaks, doesn't stay rolled and is too chewy to bite. I usually just take is from the bag to use. Should I be prepping it in any special way.

When you take the nori from the package it is VERY crispy and breaks easy.
What I usually do is to get my stuffing ready, then lay the nori on the counter and get my hand wet. I just rub water on the nori a bit until it's pliable. Not too wet or it falls apart. Then put in the stuffing and roll. That's it. :D

Thanks so much RowanC. I just tried it and was able to roll a nori sheet for the very first time.

I like to crumple it into my salads. Yummy! :p

ive found that the raw nori sheets, unlike the toasted ones i used to use, are going to be chewy and hard to bite when they get damp....if you are trying to make individual bites of sushi roll out of them, your best bet might be to cut the nori into the desired sizes first with scizzors, then put in the fillings and roll up. a lot more work and a bit messier, but i find the raw nori almost impossible to cut with a knife once it is rolled up and filled....
i use the sheets a lot for stuffing with avocado and spinach and dulse or sunflower pate and spinach and dulse, ,then mostly i just cram it into my mouth and make a big sloppy mess trying to eat it... ;) really good though. good on-the-go food is throw a pack of nori sheets in your bag along with an avocado, a plastic knife, a plastic spoon and a bag of spinach and pack of dulse, if you want, then assemble wherever you are.

To cut nori use a serrated knife. Cut with a back and forth sawing motion, with just enough pressure to cut the roll -- and they'll cut right through easily. If you press down hard, you will squish the nori.
