Our New Zealand cockles are a tiny, chewy, briny bite of ocean. Its mottled shell is a result of living near the surface in tidal basins and flats. Although, technically they are a separate species, taste-wise and use-wise cockles are the equivalent of a grape-sized clam. Cockles can substitute for clams in any seafood dish - like clams, they are done when the shells open. Packed in 10 lbs box.
