How did I come up with this recipe?
One day, I was eating dinner with my husband and we were having fries. I asked him, “How can I make fries more Asian tasting” lol. And it came to my mind – seaweed! We Asian people love seaweed. It’s such a delicious snack on its own especially when it’s the seasoned kind.
So I decided to wrap a fry in some seasoned seaweed, dipped it in some mayo and bam, this recipe was born!
I decided to elevate this dish by seasoning the fries with some garlic powder, sesame oil and sesame seeds as well. Sesame and seaweed are a MATCHMADE in food heaven.

You will need the following ingredients:
8 small medium potatoes, peeled and sliced into thick cut fries
2 tbsp avocado oil
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 garlic powder
1/3 cup Japanese mayo
4 pieces of seasoned seaweed strips, cut into thin matchsticks
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame oil
Where can I find these ingredients?
You can purchase sesame oil and sesame seeds at any asian grocer.
As for the Japanese mayo, this is a special creamy mayo by the brand Kewpie and it looks like this. It tastes similar to regular mayo but it’s much creamier.
