Default Oysters

Oysters are one the foods i look forward to eating every year! As soon as the water hits below 60 degrees, i will be picking a few dozen to enjoy. This year i plan on doing smoked oysters and of course on the half shell with an assortment of toppings. What is your favorite way to enjoy them? Here is a few pics from last years haul

I've never liked oysters anyway they were prepared. That is until I ate the Jacked Up Oysters at Don's Seafood in Lafayette. Those oysters were delicious!

Raw, fried, bienville, smoked, rockefeller- haven't found a way I don't like em. They taste best when bought right off the boat with TBHr The Cajun, from a coon-*** woman that could kick both our asses. $40 and a few beers well spent every time.

Mouth watering. Love a fried oyster poboy. Remoulade, fresh home grown tomato and lettuce and shake on some Ragin Blaze. Or just about any other way you cook them or on the half shell. All with an ice cold beer.

I prefer the charbroiled oysters at Dragos in New Orleans, that's my favorite. I do like a good fried oyster as well.

However, those massive handful looking oysters that are posted look like true trophies but I could not imagine eating one in 2-3 bites, those just don't do it for me,,,,

My father in law is bringing up some fresh ones from Austwell this week. Can't wait to bust into them, but he says they aren't that great yet. I don't care one way or another, just ready to break out the saltines/cocktail/horseradish for the appetizer, and get the grease hot for the main course!

Pretty sure that sack of oysters was purchased directly from the fisherman once they get to the dock (like buying shrimp). Fishermen need a special permit/license and have to lease property where they harvest oysters. In LA, oyster harvest and farming is strictly regulated.

Correct, those oysters never even made it to the dock. Find an oyster boat running into dock and pull up along side and make a barter. I’m pretty sure we were doing about 15mph in a 16ft flatbottom alongside the oyster boat in some serious chop water when we bought that sack.
