Frozen Cockle Meat

Frozen Cockle Meat

Collected by raking through the sand at low tide, cockles are a popular snack sold freshly cooked and seasoned with white vinegar in many UK seaside towns. You may have also seen them being sold by wandering cockle sellers as a traditional pub snack.

Our frozen cockles are shelled and cleaned before freezing and can be eaten raw as soon as they have thawed, making them one of the quickest ways to enjoy the fresh taste of the sea. They can also be boiled or steamed and are naturally delicious enough to be eaten all on their own.

How to cook

You’ve heard of a full English breakfast. But did you know that cockles feature in the Welsh version of everyone’s favourite hangover cure?

Add boiled or steamed cockles and a chunk of traditional laverbread cake to your breakfast for a Cambrian take on the classic fry up.

Cockles also play very well with other fish. Try adding them to a creamy white wine and parsley sauce for a wonderful accompaniment to pan-fried cod.

What to Drink

White wines such as Chablis, Mâcon-Village and Côtes de Provence all pair well with cockles.


When raw, the shells of healthy cockles will be closed. Discard any that are open before cooking.

Once you have cooked your cockles, discard any that haven’t opened within the suggested cooking time. These will not be good to eat.
