Definitely going to try snails this month.

I can't be arsed to pick them and farm the toxins out of them, so I'll get a tin of prepared snails from the shops.

Sounds interesting - what's your recipe?

Sort of a pick and mix off the various versions on the internet....and is all written down at home so I can't remember specifics

Basics = garlic, celery, onion, parsley, potatoes, chick peas, fennel, tomato

Fish - to be decided depending on fish counter at Tesco as no decent fish shops near us. After my recent trip to Valencia it seems with seafood paella and that sort of thing pretty much anything goes from a mixture of white fish, prawns and shell fish, squid of various forms and pretty much anything thats get caught in a net while out fishing.


Some receipes suggested chorizo, others didn't so I still need to make my mind up on that. Personally I love chorizo and would put it in everything, but not sure if it would be too much for this dish.

This book might interest you (and others).

It covers Spain by region, with stunning photography, interesting stuff about Spanish food and culture, as well as recipes. Borders had some of the 'Culinaria' collection on sale, before they closed down, and I still regret not buying more volumes in the series while they were cheap.

My snails were not too bad.

Drowned in garlic butter to the max.

They were dense and chewy, 'rubbery' isn't quite the correct description though. Someone likened them to prawns in texture, I said they were more like those banana foam sweets. Taste-wise, quite earthy, although that might be me as I knew they were snails, etc.

I think I will make steak tartare next.

Snails can be very rubbery, from personal experience. They need plenty of cooking time to soften them up.

I left them in the capable hands on Caf Rouge in Leeds, said on here a few weeks ago I didn't have the time/heart/patience to farm my own to cook.

I was in a bar last week with alligator listed as a special. Unfortunately it wasn't available so I missed the opportunity.

I've had crocodile burgers, purchased from OsGrow Online, which were nice. White meat, and a mild flavour, by the way.
