Crispy "Seaweed"

This week I am sharing one of my favorite recipes with you, Mr Chow's Crispy Seaweed.  I always thought this recipe was made with seaweed until I tried to make it at home.  The seaweed is actually collard greens and with the mixture of the salty and sweet taste, I guarantee you will not be able to stop eating!!!  Bon Appetit!!!






Ingredients:
4 to 6 collard green leaves
Pot of boiling water
Oil for frying
1/2 tsp Salt,  1 tsp sugar

Place sliced ribbons into the hot water and blanch them for 45 seconds
