fried oysters are far better than raw - they actually have taste.About the only way I eat oyster is Japanese fried style.
Kumamotos are the best of all. Small but creamy and perfect. Pacific Northwest oysters are definitely the best of all. But all raw oysters are good at the end of the day.Raw oysters are fantastic, but only like the cold water variety found in the Pacific. Gulf/Atlantic oysters are disgusting.
Kumamotos are a favorite
Nope nope nope nope.. tastes like shit and was vomiting for days the one time I tried it at a spot.
Oysters are zinc bombs. Mussels manganese bombs. Clams do not have any particular megadose of any vitamin or mineral.No, I stopped eating boogers by the time I was three. Not going to start again now. I'm sure they're good fried or whatever but there are plenty of other good seafood choices. I don't imagine they are much different from clams or other mollusks.
Yea the front part of my brains knows this… diplomatic efforts towards the back part brain have been futile for round a decade im afraid.I recall a few years back a bunch of people got food-poisoning at the local oyster festival and EVERYONE just KNEW it had to be from the raw bar clams/oysters.
Turned out it actually was caused by tainted chicken fajita's.
It's certainly possible to get very sick from eating uncooked shellfish but I've done so many hundreds of times and never had a problem once. (the number of uneventful raw meals at least triples if you count uncooked sushi too)
fun fact; the songNever been that crazy about exotic sea food, but has anyone been to the Blue Oyster bar? Fun times.
