Offering an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C, this plant is a good source of iron and calcium.
Sea beans are can be eated raw, blanched, sauteed, steamed or baked.
Sea beans are known by other names including sea pickle, sea asparagus, samphire, glasswort, marsh asparagus, marsh samphire, salicornia and pousse-pied.
Originally found only in the wild primarily flourishing on the coasts of Europe, this edible plant is now cultivated on the compatible desert coasts of the Sea of Cortez. Growing in pure seawater, the plant readily seizes and absorbs the nutrients and vitamins of the ocean. The variety of sea bean in the United States is Salicornia, and grows near salt marshes.
