What Is Pokpoklo?
Pokpoklo is a seaweed with a salty taste and crunchy texture. This iron-rich seaweed is the basis of a popular salad in the Ilocos region of the Philippines. It is often served as a side dish with fried or grilled dishes. In this article, I will show you how to make a simple version of this salad.

Tips and Techniques

- Try adding other fruit or vegetable ingredients, such as mango.
- There is no need to add any spices or seasonings, as the seaweed is naturally salty.
- Serve this as a side dish for fried or grilled foods.
- Rinse pokpoklo thoroughly to remove any dirt.
