How to Properly Eat a Raw Oyster

Since, eating raw oysters is a forgotten art - learning the proper way to eat an oyster will help give you the confidence when you actually stumble upon a raw oyster bar.

Most of the oysters in the United States either come from the West coast or the East coast.

East coast oysters will look smoother and rounder in appearance compared to the West coast oysters that have a more sharp and rigid looking shell.

Also, East coast oysters tend to be more briny in taste with more mineral notes.  West coast oysters can be less salty and have more sweet notes.

However, each oyster will be unique and an oyster's flavor profile will be based on where the oyster came from and the conditions in which it was grown.

Very Important!

Oysters need to be grown in clean waters because they act as a filter.

And whatever you do - do not overcook an oyster or it will become like rubber.

Seafood is very delicate and must not be overcooked!
