Are Oysters healthy?

Oysters are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are low in fat, high in protein, and packed with vitamins and minerals. Oysters are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and important for maintaining a healthy heart, brain, and immune system. They are also rich in zinc, iron, B-12, and copper.

Oysters are thought to boost your energy levels, improve brain function, and help reduce inflammation.

What oysters are best?

There are many oysters, each with their own unique flavor, texture, and appearance.

Pacific oysters, of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, are known for their mildly briny flavor and plump, meaty texture.

Kumamoto oysters are native to Japan, and also cultivated in California and Washington state.  They have a sweet, buttery flavor with delicate, tender flesh.

Atlantic oysters of the Eastern seaboard of the US and Canada, are favored for their complex, mineral-rich flavor and firm, chewy texture.


How do you choose an oyster type?

Choosing the “best” oyster ultimately depends on your taste preference. Trying different types of oysters can be a fun and rewarding way for you to explore this amazing seafood.


How do you know if oysters are fresh?

Key factors to look for:

  • Oyster shells should be tightly closed. If slightly open, it may indicate that the oyster is no longer alive or has been sitting out too long.
  • Shells should be free of any cracks or chips, as this can also indicate that the oyster is no longer fresh.
  • Fresh oysters should have a clean, briny odor. If they smell sour or foul, they may not be safe to eat.
  • Fresh oysters should have a sweet, briny flavor with a slightly firm texture. If they taste bland or mushy, they may not be fresh


Oysters for Special Occasions?

Oysters are a delicacy and are loved for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, and other celebrations. We love their unique flavor and texture, served raw on the half shell, or roasted . Oysters offer a luxurious, high-end dining experience, often associated with romantic or upscale settings.  Roasted oysters are specially wonderful for Christmas, New Year’s- of for the one you love at Valentines…


When all else fails tell them to supercalifuckilistic kissmyassadocious and have a cocktail



Oysters in a casual setting?

However, you can enjoy oysters in a more casual setting, such as at a beachside bar or summer barbeque.  Whether you are buying oysters for yourself or as a gift, they are a decadent treat that will make any occasion feel special.

  • Buy the freshest raw oysters you can find
  • Buy a Bushel of Oysters for a party, or you can also buy a 1/2 bushel and cut this recipe in half
  • Preheat the Oysters on the grill for at least 5 minutes, to make shucking the oysters easier
  • Use a thick protective heat-resistant grill glove or mitt, and a quality oyster shucking knife.  Good tools make oysters safer and easier.
  • Cool the Mother Shucking sauce mixture -mix a second time to be sure everything is thick and fully blended
  • Make your Oysters spicier with more Pepper Flakes, a touch of hot sauce, or by adding Chorizo sausage
  • Be careful removing the oysters from the grill – hot shells and sharp edges can be a hazard.


I'm really glad we no longer have to hunt our own food, I don't even know where sandwiches live
