cabrilla (vaqueta)

[Spanish] plural cabrillas (vaquetas)

Milky snail or cabrilla is often cooked with a broth of wine, herbs, orange peel, and garlic and served as a tapa.  Their texture, when cooked properly, should be like that of a mussel.  Special two-pronged forks or toothpicks are used to retrieve them from their shells.  They have a mild neutral flavor and are high in protein.
