I love seaweed salad but am always surprised that at local restaurants, a small portion runs upwards of $5. A couple of days ago, on my initial visit to the huge H-Mart that opened in the area last fall, I asked for a small container of it. Not until I got home did I see that it is $12.99/lb, and since then see that it is $15.99/lb in another supermarket chain here.
I have found a bunch of different recipes but there's such a variation in type of seaweed called for that I never went ahead and bought the ingredients. Is seaweed all that expensive? None of the other ingredients seem to justify the price of seaweed salad.
