This is one of my favourite ways to get an iodine boost. Iodine, from seaweed, is crucial for thyroid function, mental alertness, metabolism, immunity and oestrogen balance. And with nearly 7 out of 10 Australian women being deficient, I’m keen to top up.

This dish also gives a very decent dash of protein (15-20g per serve).


  • 2 pieces of Dory, cut into strips (I just quarter the fillets)
  • Roasted Nori seaweed sheets (sushi paper)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Chilli flakes

Serves 2

There’s one way to impress a Dory here: roll it in a little blanket of Nori seaweed, gently fry it till golden brown and sprinkle with chilli flakes, lemon and salt. Make if feel, well….wrapped!
