The French are so much more poetic about food than us. Amande is French for almond, and the name Amande de Mer literally means almond of the sea. And that’s precisely what you can taste in this quite large clam (about three times the size of a cockle). So what do we Brits call it? Wait for it... the dog-cockle. Well, dog cockle or amande de mer, it has a smooth shell with exciting orange and purple flashes and is quite a good looker. Cook amandes / dog cockles like any other clam.
