Nori has a texture/smell that not everyone will like. If you like California sushi rolls you will like it. If you are a meat and potato type, it may take a time or ten of eating Nori to learn to love it. Nori is found in Asian grocery stores and the “ethnic” aisle in most grocery stores. It is flat sheets of sea vegetables, with the salty essence of the sea. How much Nori to use? Start with 1 sheet, crumble in and see if you like more.
Dried green onions can be found in Asian grocery stores as well.
