Whelks are small sea snails with hard, spiral-shaped shells and a mild, slightly sweet flavor. They have a firm, slightly chewy texture and are often served boiled or steamed with various sauces and seasonings.

Whelks are a type of sea snail that can be found in rocky shorelines and coastal waters. These small, spiral-shaped mollusks have a tough, conical shell and a slimy foot that they use to move along rocks and other surfaces.

Whelks have a unique flavor that is often described as sweet and slightly briny, with a texture that is tender yet slightly chewy. They are often compared to other shellfish, such as clams or mussels, but have a distinct taste all their own.

Whelks are easily recognizable by their distinctive spiral shells, which can range in color from light gray to dark brown. The shells are usually between one and three inches in length and are adorned with a series of ridges and spines that help protect the snail from predators.


When cooked, Whelks have a firm, slightly chewy texture and a mild, slightly sweet flavor that is often compared to clams or mussels. They are typically boiled or steamed and served with a variety of sauces and seasonings, including garlic butter, lemon juice, and chili flakes.
