Page comments Hi Sue, glad you liked it. The salmon variation sounds great, I'll give that a try next time I make it. Caroline Sat, 11 May 2013 17:38:07 +0200 Thyme Supperclub This is lovely. Luckily my local Waitrose has samphire on the fish counter and I love it! I substituted flaked kiln smoked salmon for the prosciutto. Thank you.

None of them taste exactly the same as samphire, but will provide a bit of fresh green crunch. You'll probably need a bit of extra salt to make up for the missing seaside flavour, though.

If you were to substitute it with something that's easier for a busy mom to buy, what would you suggest? :) Wed, 17 Apr 2013 12:56:18 +0200 Silvia Hi Silvia, samphire is a plant that grows in coastal salt marshes. There are actually several different plants that go under the name of "samphire" in English, but the one I've used here (and that is easiest to find in Berlin) is Salicornia, known as "Queller" or "Passepierre Algen" in German: Most fishmongers should be able to order it for you and Frische Paradies: will usually carry it in stock without having to order in advance. Enjoy! Wed, 17 Apr 2013 12:51:09 +0200 Thyme Supperclub Hi! Thiss looks really yummy and easy to make, but I have never heard of samphire, what is it and where can I get it in Berlin?? Thanks!
