Tellines à la Persillade, a simple market dish

Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:

Tellines (pronounced tellEEne)

There was a little commotion yesterday morning at Saint Remy de Provence market. Gilles, the oyster and mussel vendor, placed a large tub of tellines at the front of his stall. First to notice, with coffees in hand at 8 am, were the other foraines (market workers).  …Continue reading here for details on this Provencal seafood specialty that is typically available in the summertime.

Tellines are tiny clams that are found along shallow Mediterranean shorelines, however not everywhere. It is not likely that your local fishmonger or Camargue fisherman will let you in on his secret of where they find the colourful shellfish. But, they will happily share their recipe for persillade a sauce created with three ingredients: parsley, garlic and butter.

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.
