Small, tasteful cockles from the Danish inland channel that connects the Baltic Sea with the North Sea. It has excellent conditions for aquaculture and wild shellfish, being low in salt content and sheltered from strong ocean currents. The Limfjord straight is among the very few waters in Europe that still contains the wild, native "flat" Oyster. The cockles are beautifully shaped, that entices the appetite. The taste is mildly reminiscent of ocean, with small, balanced notes of mussel and crab. The texture of the cockles is firm, with a delicate bite to them.
Cockles are a natural fit with nearly all sake. We like to pair them with aromatic Junmai Ginjo sake that has a mellow depth and good Umami. The aromatic cockles, invites sake that has fine floral aromas, such as the Omachi Junmai Daiginjo or Sohomare Junmai Ginjo. This is our preference. Feel free to experiment with the sake in your fridge door. You cant make any missteps here.
Serve them as they are, with fresh herbs. The cockles also make a perfect addition to risotto, pasta dishes, and as counter balancing topping for fine fleshed fish, such as cod.
