Laver is a fine seaweed collected for consumption along the Welsh coastline. Welsh laverbread or "bara lawr" has nothing to do with bread and is rather like a purée and is most commonly enjoyed with shellfish or on hot buttered toast.
You can buy tinned laverbread if you are short on time; it works just as well in this recipe but may not be as flavourful.
