Samphire is a vibrant green vegetable that is very similar to asparagus and with a fresh, slightly salty flavour. Marsh samphire is the most common variety and it’s widely available in East Anglia, which you can harvest yourself at low tide.

Cook samphire as you would asparagus – steamed, boiled or griddled – and serve as an accompaniment to fish.

In season in the summer months, and also known as glasswort.
