"This snail lives on sandy beaches in large numbers. Its flesh contains a high amount of stimulants, so when cooked into a dish, it temporarily increases your maximum hearts."
Hyrule Compendium

Hearty Blueshell Snails are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are curative items that restore Link's health by refilling three Heart Containers. Link can cook with them to create dishes with a "Hearty" effect which fully restore Link's health and temporarily grants him extra yellow hearts which are lost when Link takes damage. Hearty Blueshell Snails can also be used to create seafood such as Seafood Paella, Hearty Clam Chowder, Seafood Curry, or Seafood Fried Rice. Link can also roast Hearty Blueshell Snails with fire or volcanic temperatures to create Blueshell Escargots.

Hearty Blueshell Snails can be found along shorelines and swallow waters of the Necluda Sea and Lanayru Sea. The traveling merchant Chumin sells up to 3 Hearty Blueshell Snails for the price of 60 Rupees (180 Rupees for all three) if Link talks to him when it is raining. They are less common than Sneaky River Snails.
