Pretty, plump and heart-shaped, cockles live along sheltered seashores throughout the UK. They’re traditionally served alongside laver bread and bacon as part of a Welsh Breakfast, but cockles are wonderful in other dishes too. You’ll find them pickled in vinegar in supermarkets, but nothing beats the taste of freshly harvested cockles straight from the seashore. They lend a sweetness to seafood pasta dishes and are great cooked into a paella to add a Cornish twist.
Store live shellfish in the salad drawer of your refrigerator covered with a damp tea towel. Do not immerse in water and discard any that do not open or close when tapped lightly. Rinse with fresh water before cooking. Live shellfish has a limited shelf life - enjoy within 2 days.
