Umi Budou are a popular type of seaweed in Okinawa.
海/うみ/umi means sea and ぼどう/budou is grapes – Sea Grapes.
You can sea the resemblence, right?
It’s often eaten with a ponzu dip (like a vingegary sauce).
It’s official scientific name is Caulerpa lentillifera but it’s also known as Green Caviar.
That’s because the small balls on the seaweed pop as you eat them, releasing a salty liquid.
Sounds a little gross but it’s actually really delicious and healthy!
