Hi guys!

Has anyone tried eating limpets and if so how did they cook them. I really fancy giving them a try. I have seen two methods but neither way is practical with just a couple of limpets for trial. Method 1, cook them quickly on a hot stone using straw on top to make a very hot fire (Ray Mears stylee) Method 2 is put them in a chowder. Anyone any ideas to cook a trial size bite. I've heared they are rubbery but taste ok. I tried periwinkles recently for the first time in nearly 40 years and I was pleasantly suprised. I'm hoping limpets will be equally good.

actually limpets are better than mussels as they are grazers rather than filter feeders,ray mears is best i reckon,after cooking pop off the black sack at the top,our caveman ancestors loved them.

sorry joli mate

I have tried them once and wasnt keen they were a bit on the rubbery side but if someone had told me that I would probably eat tham any way. You could probably simmer them for a couple of minutes in any edible liquid water stoch wine then seaon with salt pepper knob of butter a few herbs.
