Spicy Dulse Grilled Cheese

Give your grilled cheese a briny-spicy edge with a chimichurri made with dulse seaweed.

What is Dulse?

Dulse is a sea vegetable found on both the East and West coasts of North America. Like all seaweeds, it’s an algae, but in contrast to many other commonly eaten species, dulse is a red. The shape, texture, and flavor of seaweed can change dramatically based on where they are harvested or cultivated, but in all cases: dulse is delicious, mild, and versatile. It boasts a sea of nutritional benefits and can be eaten raw and cooked.

Materials

  • sliced crusty bread
  • mayonnaise
  • cheese [such as colby, cheddar, and pepperjack]
  • dulse chimichurri*
  • kim chi or hot sauce [optional]

Instructions

  • 1. Make dulse chimichurri*
  • 2. Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Cut thick slices of bread, and spread mayonnaise on one side of each slice.
  • 3. Place one slice of bread, mayo side down, into the preheated skillet. Top with a slick of the dulse chimichurri, several slices of cheese, and more chimichurri. Cover the skillet and cook until the cheese softens and the bread begins to brown on the underside.
