The codium (Codium spp.) is one of the most characteristic spices in Galicia. It is a shrub formed by cylindrical branches less than half a centimeter thick and some varieties are very dark in colour and others are lighter. This sea vegetable delivers a strong sea flavour with distinct oyster overtones ans its spongy bite and velvet texture sits smoothly on the palate. Vegans and vegetarians now can enjoy a defined sea flavour in their recipes!
