Salicornia Recipe with Step by Step Instructions

My simple Salicornia Recipe I present to you in this post. The sea asparagus is harvested from May and is available in northern Germany even in supermarkets.

Yes, sea asparagus, not sea level. Bragging rights: We also know the wild vegetable as sea beans, samphire greens and zeekraal. The naming doesn’t necessarily make shopping any easier.

So that your vegetables succeed 100%, you will find below a step by step guide and a cooking video. I wish you good success and a good appetite!
