Grilled maquerels with samphire

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.
