Eucheuma Seaweed Kerabu – A Delicious Aromatic Salad

The sweet sour seasoning with aromatic bunga kantan as well as peanuts and sesame seeds would not work so well if it’s not for the aromatic belacan.

Eucheuma Seaweed Kerabu – A Delicious Aromatic Salad

This time I’m delighted that no cooking is required, and I was surprised that the raw seaweed has a nice soft ‘crunch’ that goes well with the other vegetables. Ever seen a salad with belacan? The sweet sour seasoning with aromatic bunga kantan as well as peanuts and sesame seeds would not work so well if it’s not for the aromatic belacan.

  • Hi Shannon, I stumbled into your website while looking for information on coral seaweed. I am a former Penangite currently living in USA for the past 14 years. I still have family back in Penang and my mom is currently visiting my brother in Penang. I have never known about coral seaweed until last year while googling for healthy food. Since you posted this recipe made of Coral Seaweed, you must know where to buy the coral seaweed. I have asked my brother to look for the product for me while he was in Pangkor Island but he couldn’t find it as we have never had them before in our life. I heard from a Malaysian friend who also lives here in the USA said it is kind of cheap and she was from Ipoh or may be Klang area. Can you please tell me where in Malaysia I could find the coral seaweed and how much is the cost? Thanks for sharing the recipe. It looks yummy and I love kerabu style.
