Dillisk (Palmaria palmata) 50 Gram Pack
It is commonly found from June to September. When picked, shell pieces and other small particles can be washed off and the plant then spread to dry.

In South West Ireland it is eaten dried and uncooked in a manner similar to that in which one would eat snacks at a drinks party. It is also used in cooking.
