  2. Once potatoes are done add dried seaweed into the same pan and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the excess water from potato and seaweeds and set them aside.
  4. In another bowl whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sugar ginger and garlic.
  5. Add in sesame oil and whisk again until frothy.
  6. Stir in sesame seeds and scallions. Refrigerate until use.
  7. Once ready to eat toss the potato and seaweed with the soy sauce dressing. Top it up with red onion slices and some more scallion greens. Serve immediately.
