What Are Whelks?
The whelk is a sea snail found in the Atlantic, UK and parts of the Pacific. They typically range from 2 inches to 10 centimetres long, but they are usually quickly boiled before serving as soup or salad.
It is popular in Europe, sometimes served at seaside stands in Britain, on seafood platters at brasseries in France, and as a part of pasta dishes and salads in Italy.
The snail is a versatile animal that can be served in its shell or removed to add flavour and texture.
