    Another Secret Ingredient: Kelp Powder

    Last year, I discovered kelp powder. It's a pretty amazing substitute for anything fishy tasting. The smell is just like the ocean. I like to add it to my Dashi and ramen broths, Thai dishes that require fish sauce, and a pinch is very nice in crab cakes. I have overdone it at times and my food smelled something like mackerel cat food...blech! But, if you go easy with it and it can be just the missing ingredient in a dish. I can't remember where I got it. I think it was at our local food co-op, but I'm sure it is orderable online. Cheap too!

    It bet it will be good in Miso soup. I usually grind up the sushi wrappers for flavoring.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Have you tried Dulse? It is dried seaweed and is a great substitute for salt. It has an "oceany" flavor as well, but not overly so. I use it in my asian style dishes.
