3. Prepare the sesame oil

To apply the sesame oil to each of the nori squares you could use a brush or sparse some on a plate, whichever is more fun for your kids.

4. Sparse the oil

Place each nori square on the oily plate and move it around so it soaks up some oil.

6. Heat ’em up!

To make the crackers crunchier and tastier, transfer them to a baking tray and heat them up. Either bake them at 250 degrees in the oven for 15 minutes, heat them in a pan, a minute per side, or if you have a small electric oven, bake them for 3 minutes.

7. Munch

The nori crackers are now ready to enjoy. If you prefer a deeper marine taste, sprinkle some sea salt or if you like spice, add a bit of wasabi powder.
