Fresh Oysters
Oysters
Our fresh, hearty, full-flavored oysters range in flavor from buttery sweet and slightly salty to rich, briny and slightly metallic. Connoisseurs enjoy their oysters raw, but this versatile favorite is just as good steamed, baked, grilled, broiled, sautéed, fried and frittered. They're so tasty that you will forget they are low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals. Sold in the shell and shucked.

Fresh Oysters
Open an oyster—Hold the oyster in your hand with the cup-shaped part downwards, the pointed hinge end nearest you. Slip your knife into the join between the lid and the cup. You may have to twist it a little to get access, but be careful not to grind too hard as you'll get flaky bits of shell in the oyster. Once your knife blade is in, slide it down towards the hinge and cut the hinge. The oyster will then open.
Shucked oysters arrive in jars and stay fresh for about 14 days. Enjoy them grilled, fried, or in oyster fritters.
Recipe
Deep-Fried Oysters
48 medium oysters
1/2 cup cornmeal
4 cups canola oil for frying
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cracker meal
1 tablespoon sea salt
Scrub the oysters and place them in a large bowl. Make sure to discard all broken shells or oysters that won't close. Fill the bowl with enough cold water to cover the oysters. Shake in the cornmeal and stir. Let the oysters sit for 3-6 hours, to let them purge any sand. Remove the oysters from the water and rinse thoroughly.
Shuck the oysters. Combine the flour and cracker meal and dredge the oysters in the mixture. Let the oysters sit, refrigerated, for 20 minutes.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Fry the oysters until crispy, about 3 minutes. Transfer the fried oysters to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve hot with spicy seafood sauce.
Yield: 6-8 servings

Caution
The FDA recommends avoiding the consumption of raw oysters. You should fully cook all oysters to kill off any possible bacteria. Eating raw oysters can be life threatening and even fatal when consumed by someone with liver disease, diabetes or a weakened immune system.
