Seaweeds

Sea grapes 

Sea Grapes are a special product in Okinawa, also known as "Green Caviar". To enjoy the interesting taste of sea grapes, you can serve them with vinegar soy sauce or use as a sushi topping. When you bite into these little green grains, they give you a taste of the sea. You can also enjoy them with sashimi like tuna or with other seafood, to improve the visual impact when plating your food. 

Sea grapes can be easily damaged when they are in a place which is too hot or too cold, they are not suitable for placing at temperatures above 30 degrees or below 20 degrees for long periods of time. Please store them at room temperature and consume them as soon as possible.
