About this recipe:These laverbread cakes are a fine way to eat this traditional Welsh wild food as a starter. Laver is a seaweed collected for consumption along the Welsh coastline. Welsh laverbread or "bara lawr" has nothing to do with bread and has the consistency of a purée.
450g prepared fresh laverbread
1 teaspoon lemon juice
200g rolled oats
50g toasted pine nuts (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
