Toasted nori crisps – a.k.a. seaweed crack
a delicious gluten-free, allergy-friendly, whole foods recipe

toasted nori crisps This post will be unusually short and sweet. There’s no real story here, no tale of glee or woe or self discovery. Nope, this post is just snack food, pure and simple.

These are light, airy, crispy, salty, and aromatic. They are so quick to prepare that they give almost instant gratification, something that rarely happens when you eat like we have to eat. Oh yeah, and the are completely and totally addictive. Therefore, I am giving them the alternative name of Seaweed Crack. One bite and you’re hooked. If you have any hesitancy about eating seaweed, these tempting little things will turn you right around and get you on track to being a serious seaweed-eater. It is like a gateway drug to the world of sea vegetables.

After making and promptly devouring the first batch, you’ll want to make another batch. And if you’re like me, you probably will. And then you’ll devour that one too.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


nori seaweed sheets
toasted sesame oil
sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  2. Using a basting brush (or your fingers if you don’t have one) lightly coat both sides of a sheet of nori with sesame oil, then sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Place oiled nori directly on oven rack and bake for 10 minutes, until crispy and just starting to brown.
  4. Remove from the oven, let cool, then break into pieces or slice with a pizza cutter (my preferred method).
  5. Eat.

Notes: You can mess around with this a million ways. Try other seasonings – garlic powder is awfully tasty. If you are allergic to sesame, you could use any other oil and it will work just as well. Get creative, and go crazy.

no measurements – make as much or as little as you want

    God I love this stuff! I get it pre-packaged from Whole Foods. I was just eating some yesterday and saying I could eat 20 packages at once, no problem.

    I am already an addict – they sell them at my health food store. I eat 2 packs every day. Each pack has about 6 seaweed crisps in them. Sometimes I eat 3 packs! I have to be careful and only eat them on a full stomach, or else it might make my thyroid do strange things. When I first started eating them, I would get high. Not anymore. But I am still an addict!

    I love nori and have gotten a ‘high’ from it… I worried that it could be due to high levels (natural) of glutamic acid. I’m sensitive to msg so I have been concerned that seaweed is not a safe food.
