• 100 g samphire
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon juiced


  • Put the samphire into a pan of boiling water for 1 minute then drain.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan or wok then add the garlic. Cook it gently for a couple of minute till it browns slightly.
  • Add the samphire and heat through. Stir in the lemon juice at the end. If you don’t want it to be too sharp stir in half, taste and then add a bit more.

To be honest I can see why it is not more popular – its ok but I prefer sprouts! I would like it if I gathered it myself!
