Salad of succulents with sea urchin and quinoa


You'll need

220 gm mixed edible succulents, such as rock samphire, marsh samphire, purslane and aptenia cordifolia (see note) 120 gm (½ cup, firmly packed) shredded wakame seaweed (see note) 80 gm (3 cups, loosely packed) young, tender warrigal greens (see note) 50 gm (2 cups) puffed white quinoa (see note) 30 pieces of sea urchin roe (from about 6 large sea urchins; see note)   Lime and ginger dressing 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 2 limes 1 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp grated light palm sugar 5 gm (1cm piece) ginger, finely chopped 1 tsp grated fresh horseradish or wasabi root

Method

  • 01
  • For lime and ginger dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine.
  • 02
  • Combine succulents, wakame, warrigal greens and quinoa in a large bowl, add lime and ginger dressing, toss to combine, and serve topped with sea urchin roe.

Note Rock samphire, marsh samphire and purslane are available from select greengrocers. Aptenia cordifolia is available from select nurseries. Wakame seaweed is available from select Japanese grocers and seafood shops. Warrigal greens are available from Ilovewarrigalgreens.com.au and farmers' markets. Puffed white quinoa is available from select health-food shops. Sea urchins and sea urchin roe are available from select fishmongers.


"This dish, combining many of the tastes and textures of the sea, makes a great appetiser," says George Biron. "There are many edible succulents now available at good markets. Purslane, aptenia, rock samphire, marsh samphire and seaweeds all provide great contrasts and briny flavours to complement sea urchins, the truffles of the ocean. To clean a sea urchin, remove the top circle of the shell with a pair of kitchen scissors, a bit like you would to top a boiled egg, then carefully remove the roe."
