so i tried to cook sea asparagus! it is very salty so i soaked in it 2 changes of ice water for a while. this is to get some of the saltiness out and to rinse out all the sand. then it’s time to trim the ends and any icky bits, trim off anything yellowy green (older), keep the jadey green parts. it gets a bit woody as it gets old. then i blanched it. that is the prep.
2 handfuls of sea asparagus
3 scallions, white and light green parts, sliced
a big handful parsley, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp chili paste
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 bunch soba noodles
sautee the onions and garlic for a minute, then toss in the blanched sea asparagus. cook the soba, strain it and toss into the pan. heat through with all remaning ingredients and serve immediately.
i would top it with sesame seeds if i’d had any, but i was out.
