How could I start a food blog without addressing escargot? While many cringe at the thought of eating snails, it was my favourite thing to order in a restaurant since I was very young. Back in South Africa, I could purchase them from the supermarket, but here in England I have to order them online. I even own the cheesy retro snail dishes #NERD. This recipe is uncomplicated grilled snails in garlic butter topped with Gruyere cheese and parsley. I infused the butter with garlic to avoid the chewing on clumps of garlic, which is a nifty little process to know anyway, so give it a read even if you are not into these umami-packed delights. Sigh… just too lovely as is, or mop the butter up with a slice of keto bread … enjoy.

Instructions
  1. Add the butter and chopped garlic into a small pan and melt the butter over a very low heat. Very lightly fry the garlic without colouring them. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the butter to infuse with the garlic flavour for 30 minutes.
  2. While the butter is infusing, preheat the oven to 200°C / 390°F.
  3. If the butter has solidified while off the heat, return the pan to a low heat to melt again. Strain the butter, discarding the garlic and toss the snails in the melted garlic-infused butter.
  4. Place a snail into each groove of the snail dish and spoon a small amount of butter on top of each. Divide the grated Gruyere over each bowl and place in the oven until the cheese is crispy, approximately 10-15 minutes. (It is easier and safer to place the dishes onto a tray.)
  5. Carefully remove the tray from the oven and garnish each dish with finely chopped parsley.
  6. The Gruyere packs a mighty punch, so no salt is needed.
