Taste and usage
Sea Fennel has a number of uses in the culinary field. Working with Sea fennel requires precise dosage due to its concentrated aromas. When it is blanched, the full asparagus flavour is most evident. Sea Fennel does well with fatty ingredients and is good in combinations with shellfish. The plant is also said to have a diuretic effect, to cleanse toxins and improve digestion. However, there is no scientific proof for this.

Origin 
A plant found from the beaches of the Black Sea to the coast of the North Atlantic ocean. Also found on mediterranean coastlines, but is a protected species under threat of extinction.
