Food for me is all about the people who created it, cared for it, picked it, produced it and those you share it with!! That’s why I love farmers markets where you get to meet the maker or farmer on the spot.
I prefer laid back dinners with a real family-style feel versus lots of perfectly plated creations for when I gather some friends or family together.
This seafood recipe is perfect for sharing and I great way to start any meal and really get the conversation going with lots of tasting and trying.
If you can’t get your hands on samphire which is a seaweed, use spinach or kale and wilt down by mixing through the sauce just before serving.
Serves 4 as a sharing starter.
