The whelk is a small marine mollusc found along the Atlantic coasts of Europe and North America. They are a popular food, especially in parts of northern Europe, and have a hard, chewy texture, even when they are cooked.

To prepare whelks, wash them thor-oughly several times in clean water to remove all the sand, then simmer them in boiling salted or sea water for 30 minutes. Drain them and remove the flesh from the shell by inserting a pin and pulling.
