Escargot or Snail for Spanish Valencian Paella

Valencian paella without escargot or land snail or bekicot in Bahasa is not quite “alla valenciana” for me. Paella with  mostly snails rather than meat is consider as poorer version, however, sometimes used nothing more than snails for meat. Finding escargot isn’t that easy in Indonesia, unless you’ve generous enought to visiting inported gourmet supermarket. I purchased a couple of small tin of escargot snail or daging bekicot kalengan once i luckily spot it on Carrefour Supermarket Palembang. This canned escargot or snail in chilli sauce is a product of WONG COCO®, a trusted Indonesian food company. If you lucky enought to access the live snail, you should keep it on a clean box without any food for cleaning it’s intestine prior to cooking. You could use the African land snail that available in most asian country too, i’ve using it for my French Style ESCARGOT Recipe and i guess like it for it’s chewy and yet crunchy texture.

Recipe Valencian Paella with Red Rice, Chicken, Rabbit, Snail and Vegetables

Valencian paella seasoning basically contains saffron threads, fresh rosemary, sweet or smoked paprika powder, garlic, shallots, salt, freshly grounded peppercorn, olive oil and water or stock. Saffron is the key ingredients of authentic paella, nothing could replace the pungent safranal aromas, but you can replace it with turmeric powder only for it’s yellow color. I guess you should invest on good grade Spanish or Italian saffron called “zafferano dell’Aquila” for your kitchen spice rack, trust me, it’s worth for the money.

Making paella alla valenciana is quite tricky, simply because it’s contains several meat and vegetables that needed different time to cooking. Basically, the tougher meat and veggies is sauteed and cooked in liquid  with the rice, while the easily cooked ingredients is  placed over the  nearly cooked rice. I’m using short grain red rice for making this paella recipe, that’s why i need prolonged the soaking process for about 1 hour instead of 30 minutes. The asian red rice contains more fibre then it isn’t as easy to tenderised the regular short grain rice. You could see the  step by step pictorial making paella on my Seafood Paella alla Marisco Recipe.

Soccarat, The Best Part of Paella: Toasted, Charred and Slighly Blackened Rice in The Bottom of The Pan

The best part of paella is the layer of charred and toasted (blackened) rice at the bottom of the pan called socarrat in Spain. The The toasted rice develops on its own if the paella is cooked over a burner or open fire. If cooked in an oven, however, it will not, but you can made the socarrat by exposing the the pan over a high flame while listening to the rice toast at the bottom of the pan. Once the aroma of toasted rice wafts upwards, remove it from the heat, then the paella must then sit with lid covered for about ten minutes  before serving. Some recipes call for paella to be covered and left to settle for five or ten minutes after cooking.

As majority of any seafood products, timing is crucial point on cooking the sea snail. The tiger sea snail is easily turned into rubbery and very chewy if overcooked. Some seafood restaurant like to blanch or deep fried the sea snail in few seconds just before cooking to reduce the fishy aromas. I like to blanch the tiger snail in aromatic spice infused water first before stir fry with the sauce. Just make sure that your preference sauce is throughly cooked before tossing it with the sea snail. This tricks makes no need to prolonged cooking to the sea snail. Sometimes, i like to simply boiling this in good aromatic seasoning then just dipped it in superior soy sauce mixture with chopped chillies, ginger and a little drizzle of lemon juice .

When i done my weekend jog rituals, i found a very big land snail is sneaking in my garden cerry tomato plan. The giant land snail shell is about 15 centimeters long and make a white trace with it’s slime all over my plants pots. Suddenly i think who the hell messed up with my plant is gon\na end up in my plate, hahaha.  I’m not that mean actually, i just curious about the taste since i had some SATE BEKICOT of land snail in skewer dish before when i going to Jakarta. Sate bekicot is a very popular dish in Kediri, Middle Java Province. I’m thinking about make the giant land snail into french style escargot. Then  i threated the snail in a pets cage without any for for 2 days to clean up the guts.

Escargot is a dish of cooked land snails, usually served as an appetizer in France and in French restaurants. The word is also sometimes applied to the living snails of those species which are commonly eaten in this way. In France, the species Helix pomatia is most often eaten. In French culture, the snails are typically purged, killed, removed from their shells, and cooked (usually with garlic butter, chicken stock or wine), and then placed back into the shells with the butter and sauce for serving. Additional ingredients may be added, such as garlic, thyme, parsley and pine nuts. Special snail tongs (for holding the shell) and snail forks (for extracting the meat) are also normally provided, and they are served on indented metal trays with places for six or 12 snails.

The East African land snail, or giant African land snail, scientific name Achatina fulica, is a species of large, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Achatinidae.

As they develop rapidly and produce large numbers of offspring, this mollusc is now listed as one of the top 100 invasive species in the world. It is a voracious feeder, and recognized as a serious pest organism affecting agriculture, natural ecosystems, commerce, and also human health. Because of these threats, this snail species has been given top national quarantine significance in the United States.In the past, quarantine officials have been able to successfully intercept and eradicate incipient invasions on the mainland USA.

In the wild, this species often harbors the parasitic nematode Angiostrongylus cantonensis, which can cause a very serious meningitis in humans. Human cases of this meningitis usually result from a person having eaten the raw or undercooked snail, but even handling live wild snails of this species can infect a person with the nematode and cause a life-threatening infection. So make sure you cooked the giant african snail throughly to eliminate the threat of the parasites.
