Sea Lettuce, 100g
A sea plant with a rich culinary history, ‘sea lettuce’ or laitue de mer is rich in iron and fibre, and, as you might expect, has a wonderful salty flavour. Like spinach, it is a great way of sneaking in one of your five a day.
Sea lettuce can be used in soups, stir-fries and salads, but you can also eat it on its own as a healthy snack. Wash well before use and, for a slightly different flavour, toast lightly over a charcoal fire and break into pieces.
