The Smelly Alley Fish Company – whelks and how to cook them:
Whelks are a forgotten shellfish, they deserve to be more popular.
Live whelks - boil for ten minutes in slightly salted water and eat warm. They are priced individually, 3 or 4 as a starter is a good estimate. Some people think they are best boiled in seawater, but that's not an option for everybody!
Try other shellfish - find them all HERE, or try winkles and cockles.
