Dulse is the name of what is going to be the next big superfood on the market, if it isn't already. Bigger than kale, or so Fast Company predicts, it's a seafood that when cooked tastes eerily like bacon. There is no way you can go wrong with that. Dulse is a born winner.
Fast Company writes, "Wild dulse, which is sold as a specialty item at places like Whole Foods, grows primarily on the shores of Ireland and the north Atlantic coast and is notoriously difficult to harvest: It’s plucked by hand and can deteriorate quickly." With demand outpacing supply, it's a hot commodity that's good for a number of reasons, the least of which is health.
