A firm, delicate oyster meat with a refreshing sweet ocean burst and pleasant saltiness
Keep alive till ready to serve. Keep in the shell with cup side down to retain moisture (damp cloth covering them). Keep chilled (but not in ice or water). Best to eat as soon as possible.
To best savor the flavour, enjoy “au naturel”, slurping the oyster meat and liquid “right from the shell”. Serve the oysters raw on bottom shell (top shell removed) on bed of ice with slice of lemon or vinegar seasoning or Tabasco sauce. Have a small fork to detach the meat if necessary. Cooked option include oyster Kilpatrick and oyster mornay.
