I put whelks into fish pie, but how do you eat them? Just plain, or in certain recipes- if so, in what?

Haven't had it for years but my Nan did them with mushrooms in a garlicky sauce.
Chewy fuckers but nice.

@TheQueef- were they served as a main or just a side dish?

Main dish as the protein.
Heavy on the whelks because they were cheap and served with mash and green beans.

The whelk juice flavoured the mushrooms so it felt a lot more luxurious than it was you need bread and butter to mop up smile
