Cut the whelks and mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Don't cut them too finely. Mince the garlic.
Heat the serving dish in an oven or oven toaster for about 5 minutes.
Put the olive oil in a milk pan (small saucepan), add the garlic, whelks, mushrooms, and ☆ ingredients. Cover with a lid and cook whilst agitating the pan to mix it up.
Transfer to a piping hot serving dish, sprinkle with Italian parsley, then it's done!
Story Behind this Recipe
I regularly make ajillo because I love it so much, and when I tried making it with whelks, it was really delicious.
Substitute the whelks with other ingredients!
Adjust the amount of olive oil to the size of the serving dish. The amount of salt will also vary according to the amount of oil. Although it's piping hot, season it to taste. Boldly seasoned, it goes really well with the baguette.
