Like the crispy 'seaweed' you get from Chinese restaurants.


  • vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 6 leaves savoy cabbage, shredded/ finely sliced
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • STEP 1
    Heat the oil ready for deep frying (safest to use a deep fat frier).
  • STEP 2
    Put the shredded cabbage into the oil for about 30 - 50 seconds or until crispy.
  • STEP 3
    Remove the cabbage and drain most of the oil off, place onto kitchen paper to soak up the remaining oil.
  • STEP 4
    Sprinkle the sugar and salt over the cabbage and if possible put it in a sealed container and give it a shake to spread it evenly.
