Ingredients

  • ½ kg cockle
  • water
  • salt
  • lemon

Instructions

  • Wash the cockles and leave them for several hours in salted water so that they release the sands they may have. If necessary, the water is changed.
  • Then put them in a pot or pan quite hot. With the water released by the cockles themselves is enough for them to open.
  • Serve once they are open.
  • Note: discard those cockles that do not open
