Escargot: It's What's for Lunch

An Oystercatcher Catches Snails 
Sandy Hook, NJ 

In washed the tide
and with it came thousands of snails.

 From the Tide 
 Sandy Hook, NJ 

I took a cue from the wildlife
and collected a bucketful of them.

I found this recipe from Emeril.
Sounds delicious.

Piping Plover  
Sandy Hook, NJ 

I whipped up a batch for the fam.
It was delicious.

Sandy Hook, NJ 

And...I did no such thing.
I never ate a snail
and have no plans on changing that status
no matter how many stars the recipe has.

Have you eaten snails?

You don't know what you are missing, I'll have your portion. I could eat them every day. That oystercatcher is a good looking bird.

i tasted a small piece of one that had been sauteed in garlic butter, it was all i could do to swallow it, but that was in my mind. did the same thing with gator tail. yuck. leave the snails for the birds. i have never seen anything like these on the beach, we have similar but we call the conch and now i wonder if they are conch snails... great shots

LOVE these bird photos! I have never seen an Oystercatcher of Piping Plover...and I AM jealous! ;)

No snails for me thank you very much! The Oystercatcher can have them all. I love it's dark orange beak.

Laurie said...

Yuck no! Lol!

Linda Kay said...

I have not eaten them, nor do I ever plan to try them. Ewww! The birds can have them.

I love them. I think Woody and I are the only ones. Butter and garlic -- scrumptious! I also like oysters on the half shell and that's something most people don't want to experience. A little horseradish and a squeeze of lemon and a cold draught of beer = heavenly!

No I don't think I could do that, unless I didn't know what I was eating.
