    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.
