Mussels met samphire and seaweed
Mussels 1.3 kg pp. Celery 1 stalk with green on it Onion 1/2 Glasswort 30 grams (our beans from the North Sea) White wine splash Butter lump Sea lettuce 10 gr 1 tbsp seaweed pesto Pepper from the mill Rinse the cut celery. Chop the onion. Rinse the mussels and remove the beards and smallpox on the shell. Take a cooking pot, put the mussels + celery + onion in it. A pinch of pepper and a dash of white wine. No salt! Samphire already has a salty taste in itself! Cover the pot and let it boil for about 4 minutes. Sprinkle the raw samphire over it. Shake the jar well and let it boil again for 4 minutes. Shake again so that the samphire is back on top. Divide 1 tbsp seaweed pesto over the mussels, a knob of butter and some sliced sea lettuce or seaweed. Cook for 1 minute with the lid on the pot.
