  • A large (up to 4 cm across) carnivorous gastropod mollusc, Buccinum undatum, with a grey/brown snail-like shell. They are usually boiled at the place of landing and checked for toxicity. They may be sold shelled or unshelled and are poached, baked or grilled. They are rather tasteless and therefore often served with vinegar.
