It’s stir fry time with Samphire. This Aussie Sea Asparagus can be used steamed, stir-fried or blanched and is a great complement to seafood dishes. Keep beach plant cooking at home simple by simply tossing your Samphire in the fry pan at the last minute with nothing more than a little oil and lemon.
1 bunch of samphire
Macadamias or olive, to taste
1 lemon (or 2 limes), halved and juiced
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pick over the samphire and make sure all the pieces are firm, and crunchy.
Blanch the samphire in boiling water for 1-2 minutes – the less time you leave it in the water, the crunchier it will be.
Drain the samphire and toss with the macadamia oil, pepper and juice. Serve warm or cool.
