Wakame Cauliflower Fish And Chips Recipe

Wakame Cauliflower Fish & Chips Recipe

This tasty dish gives a Japanese twist to a much-loved English favourite, fish and chips. Sea vegetables like wakame are a fabulous source of iodine that the body needs for healthy thyroid function. Cauliflower and potatoes provide plenty of dietary fibre, which helps slow down digestion and the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream. Eating fibre-rich foods with meals can help keep blood sugar levels more balanced. Keep the skins on the potatoes to give this dish an extra fibre boost.
