Potato Stir fry with Seaveg and Seafood
The ultimate no fuss dinner from Irish Seaweed Kitchen (€35) by Prannie Rhatigan - once the potatoes have been cooked (and sliced cooked day old potatoes also work well), the remainder of this delicious meal is quickly prepared in one pot. Can also be made vegetarian, without the seafood.
This recipe is from Manus McGonigle of Quality Sea Vegetables, Co Donegal, a seaweed harvester who enjoys the mix of seafood and seaweed readily available to him on the north west coast.
