The winkle (Littorina littorea) is a small edible marine gastropod with a brownish/black spiral shell. It is commonly found along the coasts of Brittany, attached to a rock sheltered from sea currents and wind. The winkle is a very popular choice for its tender and succulent flesh.

To prepare winkles, first wash them with cold water. Put them in a saucepan with water covering them over few centimeters. Add sea salt and herbs to flavor the cooking water. When water starts to boil, wait for 5 minutes, then drain.

Tip : Place algae in your cooking water to add a special taste to your winkles

Winkles can be served hot or cold according to your convenience.

Most often, winkles are served as appetizers, on a seafood dish, or with bread and butter. When taken out of the shell, they can be prepared in a sauce, fried with garlic or mixed in a salad.
