|What a meal…|
We like to eat fresh fish and our fishmonger comes down from Grimsby to our local market every Tuesday. He picks the Samphire (Crithmum maritimum) from a secret location in Norfolk and we’ve been having it for the last month or so. I love it and tonight we had it with a lovely bit of Rock Eel.
Last night we had some Red Mullet which tasted great but was full of bones.
The name Samphire comes from the French “herbe de St. Pierre”, or St. Peters herb. It makes your pee smell quite strong, a bit like Asparagus.
Anyone else out there lucky enough to have a taste?
