I’ve recently got into blending whole lemons with a banana and necking the lot. You might be forgiven for thinking that it must taste exceptionally sharp, but it doesn’t. No really, try it, it’s delicious.
So while I was crafting this sea arrowgrass recipe, I decided to throw in a whole lemon just to see what would happen, and ‘my oh my’ am I glad I did.
I am now sold on this sea arrowgrass recipe, and it has become a bit of a household favourite.
It’s just such a pity that sea arrowgrass has such a short life before becoming spiky, which is how I assume it gets the ‘arrowgrass’ bit of its name.
Be prepared for a cuisineairian delight.

Sea Arrowgrass Recipe – Instructions
