 As I was setting here shucking and eating, I wondered how many others here eat oysters, raw or otherwise. I have to fix em Rockefeller on the grill for my wife. As long as they are out of the shell, I haven't found an oyster I didn't like.

There are certain textures of food I can't handle. That is just about every shell fish in the sea.

Raw oysters in the shell, baked potato skins with chives and sour creme, and a couple long island iced teas, were my diet staples for several years. Oh the memories of bourbon street....  cheer

 I used to follow my Dad as he would wade along pulling a homemade floating wooden tub pulling up oysters and putting them in it. He would stop, sample one, shuck another one and hand it to me.

I used to eat oyster, mussels, and clams raw, right off the beach.  Raw Butter Clams have a taste of butter to them that disappears when they are cooked iin any way. 
I Have become lactose intolerant and one of my favorite dishes is clam and/or seafood chowder.  I now make mine using Coconut milk instead of cream or condensed cows milk and have to say it is even better with the Coconut milk, the secret is to thoroughly mixing the coconut milk and using a little water as possible.

Let's see, there's Acme oyster house for fried and halfshells, but Drago's in Fat City is the ticket for Oyster's Bienville or Rockafeller and the charbroiled ones are to die for!

I eat them raw but usually on a saltine cracker dipped in a concoction of horse radish and cocktail sauce with lemon.

The most desirable oyster is one that is super salty, expect to pay a premium when those are available, and those don't need any sauce!

Chase 'em down with an ice cold beer! Now that's living!

I buy them shucked and iced in pint containers, sealed and dated from a California Shipper - found at my local Shoprite.

I They are huge and can be cut in three pieces each, I'll fully dry them on paper towel and then light flour with salt pepper and garlic power - followed by a light egg wash, then into panko bread crumb until they are very dry on the outside and then QUICKY deep fry in hot oil, don't let get golden, light brown is perfect.

Oh.... and it has to be TARTAR SAUCE none of the COCKTAIL SAUCE for me, NJ doesn't do Cocktail sauce Smiley

Don't like em cooked or the huge ones.  Do love the little Olympia or quillcine (sp?) as shooters.  Mom & Dad would always bring home these jumbo, monster ones, cook em on the BBQ & expect us kids to eat em.. no one could eat a 5" oyster in 1 or 2 bites & invariably we would look @ it once cut..well, you get the picture!  Not another bite could pass our lips after seeing the insides!  The taste & texture change once cooked.  Mom did make oyster stew, loved the broth but not the cooked oysters!  J

Danno, this was so frickin' funneeeee -- "My Dad alway said eat um up son, they will make your sticker peck out"

Mick, this was even more funnnnnnnneeeeeeee -- "Tried one raw once, it was like sucking down someone elses snot"

OK, it's storytime!!!  You guys asked for it, now yo' gonna get it!!!  I can't stand oysters, by the way, the smoked ones in the greasy little flat tins are wonderful!!!  My Husband loves oysters, raw, down that hatch, IF ONLY THEY ARE FRESH, FRESH, Fresh....We lived in a town called Gibsons Landing, right on the water, eat oysters raw off the beach.

OK, so picture this.  About 10 years ago we took our oldest Daughter and her husband out for a dinner.  We went to a Korean restaurant, where you cooked your own food on a little grill thingy that was brought to the table.  It was supposed to be an interesting night out, and yes it was.  Now my Daughter is that connoisseur (thank goodness for google's spell checker).  She remembers, as a tiny girl, accompanying her Grandfather and her young Auntie and Uncle (who were just a couple of years older than her, I was a child Mother, had her at 17 and my Bro and Sis were very young) along the beaches that were infront of their home.  My Father was a beachcomber and always had oceany stuff going on.

Anyways, they would all eat the oysters, right off the beach, in the half shell, hee, hee, smiling, as so many people love to do.  Personally, I think that raw oysters suck!!!

Getting back to the story, sorry that I digress so, but I have things to tell and things to see.  Lissa thought that she would be tough and show off to her new husband that she can suck down a raw oyster.  Well......willy my chilly.  If that raw oyster didn't come right back up, into her mouth.  She tried to regain her composure.  Nope, her throat was having nothing to do with this slimey, creepy oystery thing that she was tyring to swallow.  Upon the next attempt at swallowing, this freakin', frackin' oyster slipped right out of her mouth and back down onto her plate.  Her husband was not impressed.  I think that is why they split up just a couple of years later, smiling, no just kidding.  They just didn't get along, smiling.  Now, she has that New-And-Improved, like a few of us forum gals have, and I thank my lucky stars that she vomitted up that oyster, right onto her plate and turned that guy right off.  Gruesome stuff, yep, yep, oh well, such is this life.  Have that wonderfrul and most awesome day, life, health.  Cindi

P.S.  I sold a fellow a Muscovy duck for his Christmas dinner table.  His gratitude was so high that he brought me over some of his homemade pickled herring.  Holy smokin' holy smokers!!! That was a taste that was to end all. He has honed down this skill to nothing short of absolute perfection, and the amount of onions that he had mingled with that, oh, say no more.  He is Danish, I am Swedish, think there is something to be said about these two breeds, hee, hee.  My Grandmother was a master at the pickled herring too, got the little beasts right off the wharf and into the brine they went that very same day, oh I miss her and those special treats she would make for us......C.

Rick, ha!!!  I know what you mean.  Anytime that you see bleep (anything that says bleep), think of words that rhyme with rock, mostly.  It is sometimes pretty ding dang funny what comes up, meaning, the new word that is created.

There was a post where we were talking about leek and male chicken soup.  I still laugh over this one.  There was speak of bleep-a-leekie soup.  I actually thought that the soup was called bleep-a-leekie, until I figured out a couple of months later that the bleep in that case was meant to be that one that rhymes with rock word.  I actually thought the soup was called "bleep-a-leekie", it was funny to me.  Cindi

I LOVE oysters and clams.  They must be fresh oysters I never trust an oyster from a farm!  I actually had a terrible oyster last year, it must have went funk and it almost came back up when I swallowed it. Never want that to happen again.
What I do love is oyster shooters:
Shot glass
Oyster on the bottom
vodka
hot sauce
tomato juice

I ate a "bad" oyster once about 15 years ago. I was so sick....pain and coming out of both ends. My Doctor had no sympathy for me. He said that anyone that would eat one of those nasty things raw deserves what they get. He then said that he would help me only because of his Hippocratic oath. It did not stop me from eating them again. We had oyster stew last night. All this talk makes me want some on the half shell. The best oysters around here come from the Apalachicola Bay in the Gulf of Mexico.

Then there are Rocky mountain oysters and Jungle oysters.

I told my wife, after I came back from SE Asia, that monkey ball soup was a real treat out in the jungles.  She thought I was talking about meat balls....I said yes, in a way. 

Rockey Mountain and Jungle oysters, For those who don't like slithery food is a little crunchy.

I will sad sadly, I haven't tried quality mountain oysters yet - although I fully look forward to it.

I'll be barfing if I cook it myself, I want to go to a place KNOWN for their different oysters. I'm not afraid of trying everything, sadly though somethings I don't overly like, celantro being one and any green olive.

But I'll get my chace some day - and please not FROZEN MOUNTAIN OYSTER LINKS - lol.

Isn't true that you should only eat oysters in the months that end in ''R''? I love oysters!!! We have a place here in Redondo Beach CA that has about 20 different types, decisions decisions....I think the smaller the better...thats not what she said! Wink

You have it backwards, you don't eat oysters in the months with R in them.  R is the 1st letter in Red Tide, a toxic algae that has been known to kill people who eat shell fish contaminated with it.

I don't know about that I've killed and eaten rabbit, pork, and oysters in every month of the year and I'm still standing.  I also see you missed the joke on the letter R.  I guess I need to LOL statements like that as I've missed intended humor in the past myself when no smiley or LOL in appended.

 I was always told that you only eat them in a month that had an R in it. During the hot part of the year they are milky and not very good. I still skip Sept.

I am only 10 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, I have s small seafood monger and 2 supermarkets who deal with the same quality boats. Literally, at most of your quality seafood - or fast seasfood turn around is always fresh and good. Any FISH runs from $5.95 to $14.95 at the monger, but GREAT PRICES especially about shrimp, fresh and saltwater fish, unique critters too.

I would eat more seafood if my wife woulf come up to bat and eat her fairshare. She'll by 1.5 - 1.75 lbs of fillets of scrod for me and also for her. Now, Tracey may eat a nice broiled in extra virgin and fresh cracked big chunks of peppercorn. Uner a broiler and cooked very moist.

Notice Jerry you can say saltwater again - lol. I fixed a few Smiley

BUT TO THE POINT: I would love to try every REAL APPITIZER  or MEAL on Earth - minus (and I hate to sound bigotted) 3rd world countries.

I will taste anything, I won't love everything - but I bet a find LOTS of NEW FAVORITE things to eat!!!!
