Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the focaccia until golden brown
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

In a separate pan, heat the remaining olive oil and sauté the shallot and garlic over a medium heat for about 2 minutes until the shallots are soft and translucent but not coloured
4
Add the lardons, followed by the cockles, thyme and finally the white wine. Steam with the lid on for 4 minutes or until the shells have fully opened

Spoon the cockles into a serving dish and sprinkle the basil on the top. Pour over the cooking juices and finish with black pepper. Serve with the toasted focaccia
