Clams

"Cockles & mussels" and many more

Molly Malone - what a dear girl. But was she even trying? From the humble winkle (we confess, a mollusc rather than a clam) to the stellar king scallop, we present a galaxy of visual and gastronomic delight. Mussels and scallops are the most popular but you should try some of the more unusual items - amandes, abalone and razor clams are easy to prepare and exciting to taste. For committed explorers, we have the gooseneck barnacle. Here are quantities for main course servings: in their shells, 300-500 grams. For shelled meat, think 100-200 grams.
