- After 3 minutes scopp the sanils out of the water and reserve in a container or plate on the side until almost cold.

first prepare your workspace making sure your bowl of soft butter your empty snail shells and your cooked snails are at arm reach.

follow then this process:
- Take one shell, fill it with a little bit of butter.
- Then take one snails and put inside the shell over the butter (not too deep otherwise you won't be able to take it out)
- Finally add more butter on top of the snail, until the shell is full.
you can just repeat this process over and over until all the snails are done.
