Nori (海苔) is the Japanese name for edible seaweed (a "sea vegetable") species of the red algae genus Pyropia, including P. yezoensis and P. tenera. It has a strong and distinctive flavor. It is used chiefly in Japanese cuisine as an ingredient to wrap rolls of sushi or onigiri, in which case the term refers to the dried sheets.
The finished dried sheets are made by a shredding and rack-drying process that resembles papermaking. They are sold in packs in grocery stores for culinary purposes. Since nori sheets easily absorb water from the air and degrade, a desiccant is needed when storing nori for any significant time.

    I was making an appetizer with some Japanese style ingredients and wanted to make a tasty base for them that had Japanese inspired elements, was crunchy, easy to eat as finger food, but was firm enough to stand up to a pile of ingredients. I have been making some "cheat" bagels with no yeast...
