Escargots is usually served as an appetizer in Spain and France. In France, they are typically removed from shells and then prepared before returning them to the shells for presentation purposes. They are usually cooked with garlic butter and wine.

Other ingredients such as parsley and thyme may be added. Snails are very high in protein and low in fat, (when they’re cooked without butter, of course).

The vinegar will work to cut the grease, and helps with removing the scent of the garlic. Once the shells have been boiled, carefully drain the pot, being sure not to let the butter residue coat the shells again. Place your shells on a dishcloth or paper towel and allow them to air dry.

If the shells still have a strong garlic smell once they are dry, then repeat the process. Store shells in an airtight container or large zip-top storage bag.

If you do not have an escargot serving dish, you can serve the snails on a bed of kosher salt. The salt helps to stabilize the shells on a dish or platter.

Be sure to have some crusty bread or baguette on hand, to sop up all of the delicious garlic butter that remains in the serving dish.
Spoon-shaped snail tongs are specifically designed to grasp the shells, so that you can use a cocktail fork to scoop out the delicious meat in the center. You will also need a thin cocktail fork in order to get to the meat. These tongs are an absolute must if you plan to eat the snails right out of the shell.

Drain contents, place snail meat in snails or vessel, cover with garlic butter, bake in warm over until sauce sizzles.
