seashells on the seashores

I thought these are only found washed up on the beach. Used to look for them everytime dad took the family for a beach picnic. Little did I know people actually eat these lovely custacean!!! No wonder their shells are no longer found wash up on beach anymore.

Just boil, and "suck out" the insides. eat them with a nice sambal chilli. Just like "see hum". Used to eat them when I was little, but now = fear of hepatitis, so I stay clear of them.

I too enjoyed this dish together with cockles and lala.
Have you gone for your hep jab?
