Samphire – Salicornia europaea

Samphire – Salicornia europaea

Samphire – Salicornia europaea is an asparagus type vegetable. It grows wild in marshland areas. Delicious light salty taste (the taste of the sea!). Perfect when steamed and served with crushed black pepper and butter. We are lucky to be close to where this grows in the wild and we to eat this as often as possible. High in nutrients and a perfect accompaniment to fish or even just some roasted vegetables. A real culinary delight!

The plant is reasonably hardy but being a coastal plant, growing in temperatures above those of inland frosts, is is advisable to keep sheltered. It is also necessary to water occasionally using sea salt.
