- 200g bags of cooked whelk meat
- These are meat from large whelks
- British landed and prepared whelks
The whelk is famously reckoned to be an aphrodisiac, but it’s possible this is a canny marketing strategy dreamt up by whelk fishermen. Either way, you get a serious piece of meat offering a rewarding chew (and no shell - you just get the meat). These whelks have been cooked, but you can reheat them if you wish. Apparently a lot of people type ’whelk clam’ into Google. If that led you here, take note, the whelk is not a clam. Clams have two symmetrical shells which fit tightly together. However, the whelk has just one shell, which is like a snail’s. This pack is 100% edible cooked whelk meat from British Whelks. The whelk meat is frozen together so you will have to defrost all of the meat at the same time.
