This healthy alternative to potato chips will satisfy your salty cravings.
Nori is the seaweed used to make sushi, and it makes a tasty snack. It’s light and crunchy and low in calories, so it’s nice when you want a bite of something salty. Nori is healthy as well as tasty. It’s a great source of iodine, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Although you can eat nori plain, we like to spice things up by adding sesame oil, garlic powder, and cayenne. Since these delicate sesame garlic nori chips have tons of flavor, they make a great alternative to potato chips. Plus, they totally satisfy your salty cravings.
Sesame Garlic Nori Chips
- 12 nori sheets
- 1/4 cup water room temperature
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Lay 6 of the Nori sheets on a flat surface, shiny side facing up. Brush with water, coating the entire sheet. Place a second sheet on top, again shiny side up. Once the sheets of Nori are paired together, cut into 1-inch strips and cut each strip in half to create about 40 chips.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Brush each of the cut Nori chips with the mixture, coating generously. Lay flat, seasoned side up, on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until chips have darkened in color. Cool completely before serving, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
- NOTE: Chips may not be completely crisp until cooled.

I clicked into this recipe just to see what they were, they’re unlike anything I’ve seen before! Such a cool and interesting consent. Thanks for sharing, I’m going to have to try them.
You’re welcome, Chris! I like to think of new innovative “chip” ideas. We all need a good, salty, and crunchy snack from time-to-time. Let us know what you think of the recipe after you’ve tried it!
I was wondering how to do this without the sheet losing shape and becoming impossible to handle. So I need to stick two sheets together… thanks! It occurred to me before to make some flavored chips out of it since I LOVE snacking on dry nori sheets alone as if it were chips – so crunchy with super mild seafood flavor – I love it!!!
Great idea sticking too sheets together, thanks for the tip!
