Directions

  1. Chop the garlic and crush with a mortar and pestle.
  2. Wash the limpets, open them and detach the mollusk with the point of a knife.
  3. Place the open shells in a ribbed iron grill pan.
  4. Place a little garlic and a small piece of unsalted butter onto each one (salted butter will toughen them).
  5. Place under the broiler for a few seconds and remove as soon as the butter starts to sizzle.
  6. Sprinkle with lemon juice and enjoy.
