Great samphire lovely salty flavour perfect with fish
Quality has changed
Recently I have found the Samphire not as good a quality. The stalks stay hard when cooked making it difficult to eat. This did not use to happen..not sure why? I usually love the taste with fish ... a dream!
Great veg from the sea - perfect with fish!
I've always bought this in-store, not risked online ordering I love it with fish - especially ray wings - as it's a taste of the sea to go alongside a simply-cooked fish - just stir-fry in some unsalted organic butter and serve alongside the fish! Dinner in 10 mins! It's high in fibre, simple to cook and tastes fab! It also keeps well in the fridge for several days :) What's not to like? Yes, it's salty, but it is a plant from the sea, so would expect that! We should all get used to some different veg and eat what's readily available. Not sure why it would have to be from non-UK sources... plenty grows around UK coastlines... Will check source before I buy next time... Tesco... check UK sources, please!
Woody bits, poor quality.
This is not as good a quality as it was a few months back. There is quite a few woody bits that are inedible that I purchased in the last week (today is 10/9/19). I see it's coming from Morocco, so not very fresh and this is evident in the taste and quality.
Very variable from 5 stars to one.
This varies randomly from week to week from very nice to tough and "woody". When it's good it's excellent with fish (or anything else, if you like it) when it's bad like yesterday's, it's uneatable. You can't always tell from looking at it either - you have to cook it to find out.
Avoid - far too salty
This was inedible! I know it states do not add salt, so it is naturally salty, but when I tried one strand of this, the salt level was unbearable, so the rest went in the bin. It wasn't British Samphire either, which I hadn't realised when I bought it.
