Most men hate food shopping and rather stay home but i love food shopping especially when i find new ingredients that i never cooked or for good deals . Last week while buying vegetables i found a small box of british samphire. To people who never heard of it , it is a plant that grows in coastal areas and can be picked for free if you live near the see but many people doesn’t bother harvesting or cooking them . As it is rare to find samphire in my town and it was my first time eating it i wanted it to be plain so i can enjoy the raw flavors of this vegetable/plant. It is not a big complicated recipe but more a quick post to share the basic cooking of samphire and if you find some , please try it is delicious.
*4 maquerels filets
*200 grs of fresh samphire
* 1 knob of butter
1.In a pot of boiling water , poach the samphire for a minute and chill under running water, then drain
2.In a nonstick pan with a drizzle of olive oil pan fry the fish skin side down for 2 minute before flipping on the other side and cook for another 2 minutes , then remove from the pan .
3.In the same pan as the fish add the butter with the cooked samphire . Cut the lemon lengthwise , slice one half and add to the pan and squeeze the other half also in the pan . Keep cooking while stirring for a minute , season and serve .
