  • Test the doneness of the samp by tasting a few kernels. They should be soft and fully cooked.Once the samp is cooked, drain any excess water.
  • Season the cooked samp with salt to taste. You can also add a pat of butter or a drizzle of cooking oil for added flavor and richness. Stir well to distribute the seasoning.
  • Remove the cooked samp from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
