  7. 4. Stir and quickly stir fry the samphire for 3 minutes. In the meantime toast the bread. Take the samphire off the heat and check the seasoning. Then add extra pepper or salt to taste. Watch out, the samphire is very salty already. Place the toasted bread onto plates (spread them with truffle butter if you like) and top with the samphire. Place a poached egg on top and sprinkle with the grey shrimp (optional, you can replace this by bacon or ham). Finish with a last dash of freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately.
