From “Snail farming in the UK”, a nice recipe for Escargots de Bourgogne (Snails with herb butter). However, Snails should not be eaten raw, like this Japanese fellow does. Update: A Portuguese snail recipe from Claudia

Seahorses snacks in a Beijing market. Also from “Mutant Frog” - steamed goats` head

In Portugal we eat snails too. There's an ancient (as in my grandmother's times) recipe to fight tuberculosis in which the ill person should eat raw snails. Don't know anyone who has tried it though :-)
