Clams in oil of any kind are a rare sight to behold, and along with their meaty, bouncy, buttery taste, a chief reason these cockles from Fangst are a must try.
The cold waters of Denmark’s fjords (a Scandinavian name for estuary) make for cockles that are clean, mild, meaty, and firm. The addition of locally sourced, organic, cold-pressed rapeseed oil gives the clams extra body and a buttery bite, making them perfect for dunking with crusty bread and dowsing with lemon juice or tossing with orecchiette, capers, and chili flake.
