While beets and apple add a sweet element, combining umami and sweet in one dish has become a culinary trend among savvy chefs. If whole dulse pieces aren’t available, other grains such as sorghum, farro, freekeh, or wheat berries can work here too. Make it plant based by swapping out egg and mackerel for grilled tempeh.
Fatty in a good way, both mackerel and walnuts contain a boatload of heart-healthy omega-3 fats. As with other seaweed, dulse is a reliable source of iodine, which contributes to proper thyroid functioning.
