Very rich in iodine, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins, it is a food of choice which is harvested between May and August.
Juicy and aromatic, samphire, nicknamed sea pickle, can be enjoyed raw and plain as well as fried with a little butter, garlic and parsley as an accompaniment to your meat and fish dishes. It complements a mixed salad, an omelet or a pasta dish and, like the pickle, it can be used as a condiment and bring its salty flavors alongside a fish terrine.
