Our family friend came back from a short vacation in Bohol, Philippines. She brought some seaweed, and gave us some. I love seaweed especially this kind. This is commonly called "guso" back home. This isn't fresh, but the dried one.

I soak a hand full of this in water overnight.

It is prepared, mixed with chopped tomato, onion, and ginger, seasoned with vinegar, salt and pepper, and coconut milk. Here in the USA , I substitute it with a teaspoon of mayonnaise, since fresh squeeze coconut milk is hard to find.



  1. ;-) im not a big fan of seaweeds, but i guess youll miss something if it's not usually available, especially in US. yung ngang neighbor namin na nasa michigan nagpapadala ng walis tambo.hahaha. eh gusto nyang magwalis kesa magvacuum cleaner

  2. Phioxee, we are just lucky in Southern California we have lots of Filipino stores . But we can't find this kind in any oriental store. Kaya masaya pag matikman uli ang pagkain na sa Pinas mo lang makain.
