Sea Asparagus



We are so lucky to live on an island with abundant Sea Asparagus growth. June is harvest month and Lief and I go outside to cut a bowl full of these delicious asparagus once or twice a week and use it fresh in a pasta dish or I also like to make a savoury pie with it. mmmm!

does this taste the same as regular asparagus just saltier.

No it doesn't taste the same at all. I think they call it sea asparagus, because of the thin, tall appearance which resembles asparagus. It tastes salty and depending on how you prepare it, it can be quite crisp and fresh. The texture is very interesting.
