Edible coastal species are often given alternative names to appeal to our inner chef and this is no different - the intention being to increase their usage in cooking, which is kind of our modus operandi here at Forage Box. Also known (rather questionably) as 'salty fingers' or 'sea beans', these are not actually native plants but have found their way here on various warm currents from more tropical lands and aren't really a maritime version of any of the suffixed names mentioned. They are an unusual plant in how they appear but do everything you'd want them to do on your plate: they look great, taste fantastic and have a very satisfying crunch.
Try not to worry too much about their name as any choice from the three mentioned can be misleading. Enjoy them raw as a quirky garnish or try them lightly steamed alongside fish or asian flavours.
