oyster season!

    Oysters are said to be best in months that end with "R", at least here in New England, so technically it's oyster season! I like to slurp 'em raw, but my husband is NOT a fan of the raw shellfish, so I need to cook his. I've only ever cooked oysters in oyster stew. Anybody have any good COOKED oyster recipes?

    Oh, that's right! I was waiting earlier for oyster season to start before trying them raw, but finally I said 'what the heck' and tried them in July. Reminds me, need to get some today, to keep up my Once a Week Oyster Slurp.

    I get out of work early today and I'm going to buzz by the fish market and stock up for my own slurp-fest. I've never had to shuck them myself, so should be an adventure!

  4. Please ler me knowhow you do with this. I must start shucking myself. I am also gonna have to get out the hot glue gun to deal with all the shells. I hear crazy lady make your own garden art calling my name.

    I just read some tip about opening them with a bottle opener rather than a knife: push the pointy end of the bottle opener in next to the hinge in the shell and wiggle it around until the shell pops open. No clue if this actually works or not, but I'mma give it a try. :D

    I'm not a fan of raw seafood and have only eaten oysters fried (yum, but not optimal) so I'd love some recipes, too!

    I found one for oysters with bacon and leeks that looks great, and one for oysters baked with a Sriracha lime butter sauce that literally made my mouth water. Too bad butter = sat fat = not optimal to have with shellfish. Pretty sure I can figure out another fat to use, though! :D

    Where did you find them?

    There are a ton on Epicurious.com - just search for oysters. Be aware that a lot of them involve bread crumbs and so will need tweaking, though. The Sriracha lime butter recipe, I don't have the link handy for right now, but will see if I can dig it up later on and post it,

    What about coconut flour instead of breadcrumbs?

    May very well work, yes! I've never used coconut flour, so not sure.

    I love oysters in any form....definitely going to have to look at the bank balance and pick some up... nom, nom, nom, nom

  14. I find a combo of almond flour and finely shredded coconut is a great breadcrumb solution!

    I went to a restaurant today--guess the name?? Okay, I will tell you. It was Tom's Oyster Bar. :D I might have eaten to many because I came home and exploded. Sorry, no visual. They were all I ate so it must have been them.

    Sorry Dr. K, but GI distress including diarrhea and vomiting can occur very quickly when eating contaminated shellfish.

    diarrhoea and abdominal cramps); chills;

    They seemed fresh, but who knows. About 2 hrs after I ate them I felt it come on.
