Author Notes: Sea Asparagus is one of my favorite side dish along with fish & Rakı (Special Turkish Beverage) however I never tried to cook it at home. I even learnt that the sea asparagus does not grow on the sea but near river sides few days ago… Even that ignorant, I manage to prepare a delicious sea asparagus salad only in 20 minutes. —Ekin Soyaslan

- To understand if they cook or not take one sea asparagus and try to peel the green parts (you can see how to do it in photos above) If you can peel it easily you that’s done.
