Though they’re the smallest bivalves, cockles deliver a huge amount of flavor. Whether served on their own, tossed in a light pasta, or paired with scrambled eggs, cockles are sure to become your new favorite bivalve. Here are seven amazing ways to serve them:
1. Chinese Noodles with Cockles and Pork
Pork and shellfish is a classic Chinese combination. Try it here with marinated ground pork and tiny cockles.
2. Steamed Cockles in Scallion Broth
Here, deliciously briny cockles are simply enhanced with white wine and scallions in a savory broth. To turn this first course into a more substantial meal, toss the cockles and broth with pasta and chopped tomatoes.
