  • 1 kg fresh tagliatelle
  • 1.4 kg bouchot mussels from Charente Maritime
  • 150 g of salicorne from the Ile de R (freshly harvested)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 organic carrot
  • 1 organic onion
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds (ideally crushed)
  • 2 sprigs dill
  • A handful of fresh parsley
  • 1 organic fennel
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour


  • Step 01
    Prepare the stock. Dice the onion, carrot, ½ fennel and garlic.
  • Step 02
    Lightly brown the onion, garlic, carrot and ½ fennel in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil and a large teaspoon of salt.
  • Step 03
    Add the finely chopped parsley, dill and (ideally crushed) fennel seeds.

    Rinse the samphire. In a saucepan, with a pinch of salt, bring enough water to the boil to cover the samphire. Blanch the samphire by throwing it into the boiling water and leaving it for just a minute. Drain and stop cooking by throwing the samphire into a bowl of ice-cold water.
  • Step 07
    In a saucepan, drizzle with olive oil and fry the diced fennel until slightly melting.
