Dinner

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 22 September 2013 in Food & Cuisine.

A slice of Salmon (Sockeye if I remember correctly) accompanied by samphire. We came across the samphire (also known as Sea Asparagus) growing on the shore by the dock. I recognised its shape but felt the need for confirmation, This was difficult as most locals don't seem to bother with it, but using the internet we got enough corroboration to take the risk. I later came across reference to it in the book I was reading' Passage to Juneau, a sea and its meaning' by Jonathan Raban. Captain Vancouver was well aware of its properties and fed it to his men to stave off scurvy.
