Samphire – As seen on Master Chef

SamphireSamphire is an edible succulent that grows in coastal areas of Australia. With slim, noded stems it has a slight resemblance to asparagus, but delivers a salty, spicy taste with crunch. Samphire is a versatile ingredient that can be enjoyed in a wide variety of ways. Try blanching or lightly boiling then toss with butter or oil and vinegar as an exciting side dish. Samphire adds unique flavour to seafood dishes. It can be sautéed, stir-fried, steamed, pickled or used as a unique garnish for a wide range of meals.

Samphire was recently featured in the current season on Master Chef The Professionals. For more meal inspiration view this delicious recipe by Master Chef’s Marco Pierre White:
