glasswort
Explanation:
In French, it's *salicorne*--I have a jar of it, pickled, that I brought back from France with me. It is served in seafood places on the Breton coast, as a garnish. I've also had it a crêperies. My husband and I have been collecting it for a long time on the New England coast, and enjoying it in salads (as recommended by Fernald and Kinsey; Euell Gibbons writes about it, too).

Here's what Termium has on it, for the English, including mention of its culinary value:

English:Aquatic and Semiaquatic Plants
Systematic Botany
Fruits and Vegetables (Processing)
