What is a Sea Pantry?
When it comes to health foods, the ocean delivers! Fish, seafood, and seaweed are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important nutrients for supporting heart health. But foods from the ocean – when farmed or caught sustainably – also bring big benefits to the environment.
For the sake of both human health and ocean health, it is time for us to get a taste of the SEA. If we can commit to keeping these items on hand, we can expand our palates and improve the planet at the same time.
What Items to Keep On Hand?
Take a look at my Pantry from the Sea – a treasure trove of beautiful, sustainable kelp, sea vegetables, fish, and shellfish (as well as personal care items and even pet treats containing ingredients from the sea) that support healthy living and healthy oceans.
And if you think there’s anything I should add to this ever-growing list, please do share it with me!

Pasta and Grains
Staples for the Fridge & Freezer

For those of you who love cookies AND “test kitchen” type experiments, you might be interested in my adventure in making SEAWEED FROSTING.
These sliders have it ALL: juicy kelp burgers, irresistibly gooey Swiss cheese, soft sweet rolls with a savory butter drizzled over top.
Looking for a quick dish that contains not one but TWO blue foods? Look no further than this simply scrumptious Seaweed-Crusted Steelhead Trout served with seared squash and a salad of arugula, fresh figs, and goat cheese.
