Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In small bowl, combine sesame seeds, garlic powder, salt, and cayenne (if using). Use spoon to stir until well combined.
Shape nori sheets into triangles and season following photos below.
Place baking sheet in oven. Bake until chips are slightly shriveled and sesame seeds are golden, about 8 minutes.
Nori is a mild-flavored seaweed used in all sorts of Japanese dishes. But it doesn’t grow in flat, even rectangles! To make nori sheets, moist, wavy, raw nori is cleaned, minced, pressed, and dried into flat, crisp sheets. To up the crispness and make our nori chips sturdier, we fold each sheet in half before baking, using water to stick the folded sheet together. Painting each nori sheet with toasted sesame oil adds even more chip-like crunch and helps the sesame seed mixture stick.
