"The shell of this hearty blueshell snail acted as a tiny slow cooker as it was roasted. Some people love the trademark bitterness of its tail meat." - Description of the Blueshell Escargot item

Chef's Note

This delicacy is also a favorite of Phia from Star Ocean. There are several ways to prepare it. Some leave the snail inside, while others cut out the undesirable parts and return the chopped body to the shell before roasting. Some people also add soy sauce, butter, and/or sake only after roasting for some time. I'd suggest experimenting to see what you enjoy best.

If you don't live in Japan, you may have trouble finding blue turban shells. You may be able to make other recipes from the Zelda universe, though!

Recipe

Making the Blueshell Escargot


You will need:

  • At least one turban shell
  • Soy sauce, butter, and/or sake, as desired

Instructions:

  1. Wash the shell. Extract and rinse the body.
  2. Remove undesirable parts of the body (you can watch how others perform this here and here). Cut and wash the rest of the body and return to the shell.
  3. Place the turban shell on a grill or fry pan with the opening side up.
  4. Pour a small amount of soy sauce and/or sake in for flavor, as desired.
  5. Once the contents of the shell are gently bubbling, the escargot is ready to eat. You may optionally add butter at this point. Then try it, and feel your health be restored!
