foraging Sea Lettuce, edible seaweed, in Devon

Sea Lettuce (Ulva)

Sea Lettuce edible seaweed is a lovely pale green with beautifully fresh looking broad leaves, looking a little like what you'd expect from a home grown garden lettuce - hence the name!

Sea lettuce is similar to dulse as an edible seaweed that is a source of protein whilst also being low in fat. In comparison to other seaweeds, Sea Lettuce is relatively low in levels of iodine but is abundant in iron.

In terms of taste, Sea Lettuce has a delicate, soft texture but a strong taste, which is why at Seaspoon we used it sparingly in our blends in order not to overpower the subtle flavours of its companions in the blends.
