If you buy live whelks cook
them by boiling them. Don’t cook them
for more than 10 minutes or they will be rubbery. They are great eaten warm.

Our best recipe is simple –
serve with mayonnaise stirred with crushed garlic and chopped parsley. 5 or 6 make a good starter, so one of our
portions of 200g will serve two or three.
Just arrange them on a plate with the mayonnaise, sprinkle some mild
chilli powder or smoked paprika on the mayonnaise and add a slice of toasted
brown bread. Couldn’t be easier!
We’ve seen lots of other
recipes, for example for minced whelks in a fish burger and stir fried with red
peppers, but we think the simpler the better.
