Sushi tasted like pure seaweed


What can I do to get avoid a super strong seaweed taste when making sushi? I've had sushi wrapped in seaweed before, and I absolutely love how the roll tastes. However, I attempted to make my own sushi at home and everything was turned out fine but the moment I took a bite it tasted like pure seaweed. I know that it'll have somewhat of an after taste, but it tasted as if I was eating the dried nori itself.
Any tips on what to do or why my sushi tasted that way?

Real dried seaweed isn't very pungent/overwhelming in taste

Its taste will increase if it's roasted or made wet

I suspect you got either bad seaweed or its flavor was artificially enhanced
