  6. Stir the winkles a little until the wine sauce starts to boil. Then put a lid on the pan and let the winkles vigorously cook for about 4 to 5 minutes. In the meantime slice the spring onions up finely. Add them to the cooked winkles in the end. Stir well and cook until the tomato sauce is glossy. Then check the seasoning and add extra smoked paprika or salt to taste if necessary.
