Inspired by the movie, The Little Mermaid,
Recipe conceived by Lacey Mauritz & Olivia Mackoul
I love The Little Mermaid. All of its characters just make me smile, even the evil ones. Speaking of which, Flotsam and Jetsam—the sinister pair of moray eels that serve Ursula, the sea witch are without exception. I love them so much, I even gave them their own recipe! If you haven’t seen the movie in a while, do yourself a favor, and rewatch it with—or without—the kids.
Seaweed is a form of algae that grows in the sea. It’s a food source for ocean life and ranges in color from red to green to brown to black. The Nori seaweed in this snack contains a concentrated source (25% of RDI) of iodine and an amino acid called tyrosine. Your thyroid gland, which regulates your metabolism requires both iodine and tyrosine to function properly.
