  1. Salted Tosakanori seaweed should be rinsed twice with water to remove salt. After that, soaked in water for about 3 minutes to remove the excess salt.

  2. For Dried Tosakanori seaweed, soak it in water for 4 minutes to rehydrate.

  3. ※ When soaking in saltwater, make sure to thoroughly rinse off any debris or foreign objects that may have gotten inside. If there are any discolored parts, it's best to remove them.
  4. Cook the instant noodles according to the package instructions. Rinse well and cool in ice water to chill thoroughly. You can substitute any of the above ingredients with your preferred toppings.
  5. Spread the noodles on a plate and mix with about 2/3 of the sesame sauce. Arrange all the toppings over the noodles, considering the colors for a visually appealing presentation.
  6. Finally, top with Tosakanori and drizzle the remaining sesame sauce over it. If desired, add some kimchi on top for an extra kick.
