Sea Grapes are called “nama’ in Fiji and are harvested in shallow waters near the reef. Nama is often seen in markets or on the buffet tables in resorts. It is said to have anti-fungal and anti-viral properties and they are a fantastic alternative to caviar. Here is an easy recipe that will take you back to tropical Fiji !
I have found that Sea Lettuce pairs really well with fruits. I like to work with the leaves, their bright colour never fails to lift the look of a dish and their delicate taste doesn’t need strongly flavoured seasoning. This surprising combination is visually stunning, super easy to prepare and really pleasing to the taste buds ! Try it next time you entertain…serve it as a canapé, in individual spoons as shown here, with a glass of sparkling wine !! This recipe is sure to impress !
