Seared Tuna Tacos with Fermented Seaweed Salad

Seared Tuna Tacos with Fermented Seaweed Salad

New England Food Blogger and Registered Dietician, Jenny Shea Rawn, suggests making these beautiful tacos using our fermented seaweed salad: "The majority of seaweed on the market (98%!) is grown in Asia. Most of that is dried and dyed. We love seaweed salad, so when we heard about this  [Atlantic Sea Farms] version that is cultivated and harvested close to home, we had to try it. And gosh. It is just so. much. better. It’s clean tasting, healthy, and rich in probiotics, antioxidants and other essential nutrients with no coloring/dyes added."
