Tellin (Scrobicularia Plana)

A bivalve clam of the Scrobiculariidae family living in the Mediterranean and along the coast of the east Atlantic as far north as the south coast of Norway.

It grows to about 6cm, has a slightly peppery flavour - being particularly popular in the Charente-Maritime region of France, where it"s called "lavagnon". It"s best eaten raw, but like many other small clams, are good steamed then added to chopped onions that have been sweated in a mixture of olive oil and butter.
