Whelks, a marine gastropod or sea snail, there are many different types of whelks: rock or razor shells, Atlantic purple urchins, periwinkle, and conchs for example. They are a popular dish in Europe as they have a sweet taste similar to Scallops and go beautifully with garlic and butter!

Whelks are a great source of calcium, zinc, protein and iron. A small plate of whelks contains more calcium than a glass of milk! They are great for maintaining healthy bones. Whelks are also very rich in sodium and can help to keep your blood pressure down.

Fry them in a pan with garlic, butter and lemon to keep them moist. They taste equally good as a side dish or as part of an Asian inspired meal. These potatoes are also excellent when served with chill.

    Amazing flavour and texture. Lovely in salad as they are very fresh but absolutely incredible in tomato linguine. Just after 2 minutes of cooking the whelks contributed beautifully to the flavour of sauce. Very happy with this product and will buy it again.
