Most people associate eating seaweed with Asian cuisine, but this is a traditional Welsh breakfast food that has similar relatives in Ireland and the British west coast. Laver is a type of seaweed that also used in making Japanese Nori, which is just shredded and dried laver. For this recipe, you can use fresh laver (this is best if you can get it, but it is more time consuming) or prepared laver that comes usually in a can or a jar. You can usually find it health food store because it is high in iron and iodine. If you do find fresh laver, wash it throughly, boil it for 6-8 hours until soft, and puree it in a mixer.
