Tempura Snails Sriracha Stir Fry
In our tempura snails sriracha stir fry we have combined the well known cooking styles of China (stir fry) and Japan (tempura) to create this colourful and flavoursome dish with a little added zing from the sriracha.
Sriracha itself is originated in Thailand, and is another wonderful addition to the worlds love affair with hot chilli sauces.
Snails too are becoming an increasing imported ingredient in the far East, particularly China.

Allergen warning: both mussels and their land based cousins snails (esgargot) are molluscs. Therefore, you do need to be aware that the mollusc allergen is relevant to both when tracking allergens in recipes.
L’Escargotiere (Bowland) Ltd supply the snails used in our recipes, farming snails near Clitheroe, Lancashire. Over 80% of snails are still picked from the wild, whilst snail farming (heliculture) only contributing about 15-20%.
Due to the influence of French, Italian and Spanish cuisine across the globe, farmers cannot keep up with the demand, with China being one of the worlds biggest consumers. Being a UK based farmer L’Escargotiere (Bowland) Ltd can deliver anywhere in the country.
