An extraordinary combination of sweet and savoury that makes the most refreshing starter on a warm summer night.
For the dressing
2 tsp honey
1 tsp rice-wine vinegar
2½ tbsp mirin
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp tahini paste
2 tbsp groundnut oil
Soak Wakame & Sea Spaghetti separately in tepid water (note Wakame will re-hydrate within 3-5 minutes but Sea Spaghetti will take 20-30 minutes). Alternatively, Sea Spaghetti can be simmered for 10 minutes for rapid re-hydration).
Drain soaking juices (don’t discard – they can be used in soups or stews as they are full of nutrients).
Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl and whisk until well combined.
To serve, lay three slightly overlapping wedges of watermelon on each plate. Put some sea spaghetti and wakame on top, making sure the watermelon underneath is still visible, and pour over the dressing. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve at once.
