Matjes Salad with Sea Asparagus and Apple

My simple matjes salad with Queller and apple I present to you in this post. The fish salad is in less than 20 minutes on the table.

The Queller is also called sea asparagus and salicorne and is a wild vegetable. The harvest time begins in May. It tastes raw, blanched and steamed.

A cooking video accompanies you. I wish you good success and a good appetite!
