Edible Bubble Wrap

Tonight I had Okinawan umibudō and I think I’m in love. “Sea grapes” are little stalks of bubbly seaweed dipped in soy-vinegar sauce, served with smoky shaved bonito and a little mayonnaise. They crunch in a super-satisfying way, like popping those sheets of bubble wrap. I admit, I ate way more than my share.
