Hey Oahu Fresh members–we are so stoked about this week’s bag! We are featuring sea asparagus this week and we hope you enjoy it, especially if you’ve never had it before. We’ll provide several recipes in case you are not sure what to do with it, but don’t hesitate to just toss it in a salad or use as a side to grilled or steamed fish.
Our sea asparagus this week comes from Marine Agrifuture (An archived article in Star Bulletin about sea asparagus from Marine Agrifuture), and you’ve probably heard of them or seen them at various events around town. Also included in the bag are green onions and slicing tomatoes from Green Growers, hydroponic lettuce from 808 FarmFresh, eggplant from Ho Farms, and cucumbers and bush beans from Pacific Gateway Farmers in Kunia. Lots of great locally grown food that you can use in a number of ways. Happy eating!
Sea Asparagus Salad with Grilled Shrimp Skewers This one looks amazing. I will be making this pronto!!
Several recipes for sea asparagus from West Coast Seaweed.
Sea Asparagus Pasta (Gluten free with rice noodles!)
Green Beans with Bacon Not sure if I’ve posted this one before but since it’s easy and has bacon, it surely deserves a repost. And it has bacon. Did I mention that? 😉
Green Onion Pancakes This is one of my favorite “cheat” foods. I love the onion flavor and definitely would make this at home–although probably good to put half in the freezer so I don’t eat it all at once! I bet it would be great with brunch foods.
