Galician-style sea snails

This dish of sea snails, or canaíllas, is made up of a pork shoulder broth in the shell of the snail. To preserve the pure flavour of the pork shoulder, the sea snails need to be dressed without the broth inside being affected. With CAVIAROLI, the sea snails can be dressed with olive oil and chilli, thus preserving the pure taste of the broth yet adding the sweetness of the oil to the dish.
