Long, thin and with a crisp, crunchy texture, ogo seaweed is found in many Hawaiian recipes, perhaps best known as an ingredient in poke, the Hawaiian seafood salad.
Ogo is also enjoyed pickled and in salads. Ogo can be found off the coasts of Japan, Southeast Asia, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. Depending on the conditions of where it grows, ogo can vary in color from almost white to brownish-black, with greenish-red being the most commonly found. Ogo is available fresh in the seafood department.
