Seafood » Periwinkles
Periwinkles are one of the most overlooked and underrated members of the seafood family. They are what we like to call "the poor man's escargot." Lynne has prepared them Portuguese style - very simply with just garlic powder, pepper and a little seaweed. But you could also bathe them in butter and garlic if you so choose. Makes a great appetizer and it's fun to master the technique of getting those little guys out of their shell.
