Learn More About Sea Spaghetti: (Himanthalia elongata)
Sea Spaghetti: (Himanthalia elongata) is also known as spaghetti de mer, thongweed, sea thong and button weed. It grows in semi-exposed areas in the lower tidal zone. Not to be confused with Bootlace seaweed, Sea Spaghetti grows from a distinctive button shaped hold-fast and has thicker, stronger dividing fronds. Watch out for it at lowest tide on a full moon in Spring or Summer. Fresh spring-time sea spaghetti has a subtle nutty flavour and can be eaten raw in salads. Later in the summer treat it much like pasta spaghetti and serve with a chilli and garlic tomato sauce. Watch as it turns a bright green as it cooks in boiling water.
