Seafood Salad Spread

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Seafood Salad Spread…whereas someone may look at this recipe and question the fact that there really isn’t any seafood (tuna, shrimp, fish, etc)….I would have to beg to differ, kelp!  Kelp is a sea”food” and so darn good for you!  Kelp is a type of brown-colored seaweed that grows along the ocean shores that can be eaten raw, but it is usually dried and ground into a powder.  See below for health benefits.   We have a house guest staying with us for about 2 weeks.  House guest, goodness that sounds cold.  A dear friend of ours, is more like it.  And bless his heart because in the 2 days that he has been here already, he has eaten and taste tested many raw creations!  The good news is that he loves every one of them so far.  Today, I made this Seafood Salad Spread and made an open-faced sandwich for the boys to split.  They both really loved it.  They found it very filling and satisfying.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds, soaked for at least 30 mins.
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 30 mins.
  • 1/2 cup tomato, diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped carrot, (1 medium)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp Braggs Amino Liquid (Tamari or Nama Shoya)
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp kelp powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp chopped white onion
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Preparation:

  1. Place all of the ingredients listed above in the food processor.  Blend until it makes a nice “spread” consistency.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for approx. 3-5 days.

Tips:

  1. This spread would be wonderful served on raw breads; spread on raw crackers, used as a veggie dip, rolled up in a wrap and great in making raw Nori rolls!
  2. As with most raw foods that are blended, the flavors tend to intensify as they sit.  So keep this in mind as you taste test.

Here is a close up of the texture.

    Made this and enjoying it with my onion bread…I didn’t have the kelp powder and I am sure it would have enhanced the flavor even more…

    Divine! I had no kelp powder so soaked some dried Arame seaweed. I’ll use it to bind some ‘riced’ cauliflower and make raw nori rolls for dinner tonight!
