Peppered Snail consists of boiled snails sautéed in onions, peppers and spice and it is very easy to prepare. Yummy for gatherings and cold weather. 

Ingredients

  • Snails (Depending on the size you want)
  • 2 large Onions
  • 2 Scotch bonnet peppers (you may use less depending on your spice tolerance)
  • 1 Small bell pepper
  • 3 Limes (may substitute with 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons of Shrimp powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Seafood bouillon powder
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • A quarter cup of Oil

Method

  • The first step is to wash the snails. You can wash in a mixture of lemon juice and hot water and then rub afterward with the lemon itself to remove the slime. You can also replace the lemon juice mixture with vinegar and hot water and after having it sit for about 10 minutes scrub with a clean sponge (see details in recipe below). Some also soak snail in alum, and wash after 20/30 minutes. 
  • After washing, boil the snails with sliced onions; scotch bonnet peppers, salt and bouillon in water with 1 teaspoon of bouillon, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 bay leaf on low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Sauté another sliced onion, scotch bonnet, and bell pepper in oil on medium heat until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add in the snails, and continue to sauté for another 15 minutes. Taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Serve the peppered snails hot with a side of extra chilli and onions if desired. So Yummy!
