Fried snails in vinegar and Rosemary sauce
Snails are a favorite delicacy of the Cretans, since the Minoan Times. It was the food of the poor, since they were easily found everywhere and easily prepared. Here, we suggest the most known method of cooking, fried snails in vinegar and rosemary sauce.
Wash the snails and clean them extensively. Boil them 3 times in salted water, adding some vinegar and fennel. Salt the snails, flour them and cook them in sizzling oil for 3 minutes, with their openings facing the pan.
Lastly, increase the heat and when the heat is at its peak, add some local vinegar and rosemary on top of it. Then, cover it and remove it from the heat. Let it "rest" for 2 minutes and serve.
Good Luck & Good Appetite!
