Since we live in Wales it's high time I get to know the cuisine a little better. The first order of the day? Laverbread. First mistake? I went to the bakery to get it. I didn't know laver is seaweed (that has been boiled for about six hours.) The bakery sent me to the fish stall. I was advised to mix the laverbread with oatmeal and fry it in bacon fat. To make it vegetarian friendly I used butter instead. I'm not sure if this is anything close to the authentic laverbread patties, but I liked it.
1 cup laverbread
1/2 cup uncooked oats
salt and pepper to taste
butter for frying
Here's the laverbread from the fish stall. (Sorry about the picture.)
Mix it with oats and a little salt and pepper. Use a teaspoon to make a little patty. Heat some butter in a skillet and place the patty in the skillet.
Fry until browned on both sides.
