Glasswort

Salty vegetables from the sea

Samphire - Product photo

Glasswort is a sea vegetable grown in saline conditions. So, it is hardly surprising that the taste also has that salty and savoury flavour. The vegetables are grown in areas where the sea floods the land. Its appearance with many stems is reminiscent of a cactus. The vegetable can be cooked but also tastes good raw, as an unexpected salty addition in a salad, for example.

A real sea vegetable like glasswort feels right at home in a multitude of seafood recipes. It provides a natural salty touch in pasta with fish. And glasswort is also suitable for more adventurous uses: why not try making tempura with it? To prepare the vegetables, just cut the bottom off with a sharp knife.
