Slugs, question to snail eaters?

People eat snails even though the shell gets in the way.
What about a shell less snail?
Do people eat slugs?
If not, why not?

Re: Slugs, question to snail eaters?

I have several snail recipes if anyone is interested, we eat snails quite a bit in Krete where I'm from.  I've never heard of slugs being eaten, but there are several types of snails that are eaten all over the world.  Snails must be treated like other shellfish, meaning they must be alive when cooked, or they must be flash cooked and immediately frozen to store.  Salting them while they are alive will most definitely kill them and we avoid salting the snails until they have expired in the pan.
