Product Information
  • 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.

  • "I can get whelks from the east coast of England but am inland at present where quality, small, sweet whelks are hard to come by. The ones from The Fish Society are beautiful."
