Sea Snails are known by many names, and popular in a variety of presentations throughout Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. The French relish bulots directly out of their shells, boiled with herbs and served alongside fresh mayonnaise. In coastal New England, the Knobby Conch evokes similar enthusiasm each springtime, when the waters warm enough for these ocean-floor scavengers to emerge from their winter hibernation.
Knobby Conchs have beautiful, ornate shells, and a mild flavor most often compared to crab or clams. Their diet consists of oysters, clams, mussels, and other bivalves, all of which give a salty, versatile profile. Aside from the French tradition, Knobby Conchs are delightful when served raw, sashimi-style, and many Italian recipes incorporate scungilli into pasta sauces or marinades. Unfortunately, the vast majority of conch consumed in the United States is heavily processed, integrated into chowders or canned/frozen formats. These Live Conchs are a beautiful departure from such aloof and uninspired presentations.
