A 3 Way Oyster Fix

Updated on March 27, 2012

The Oyster Fix

Oysters, oysters, oysters.......What can I say there so sweet and juicy tasting, I fell in love with oysters when I was A kid and going to Virginia with my god parents to see there family, when we use to go we would go out with my god cousin in his boat and they would catch fresh oysters and with my god father being a chef he use to prepare them in many different ways and Man o man where they good fried , on the half shell buffalo style and even po-boy style ...I'm telling you there was nothing better.

I know there were some people who said that oysters were are not safe to eat because of the bacteria it content ....but according to the F.D.A. Oyster are healthy to eat, cooked oysters are generally safe to eat, but raw oysters, can harbor a variety of ills among them virus that can cause upset stomach and even hepatitis , but they say that its extremely rare.

Now in the last a naturally occurring bacteria ''vibrio vulnificus has caused very serious illness and even death in a number of people. Since then the seafood industry has come up with ways to treat raw oysters to kill the bacteria, called post-harvest processing or PHP. Oysters can be frozen, treated with hydrostatic pressure, or pasteurized. Oyster treated this way are designated virtually bacteria-free by the FDA. if YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT EATING RAW OYSTERS JUST ASK YOUR SEAFOOD MARKET TO ORDER POST-HARVEST PROCESSED OYSTERS.

Now if your going to a restaurant ask if the oysters have been post-harvest processed. If they don't, order cooked oysters instead. Now that you have the in and out of oysters lets cook some oysters plus it safer than raw in my book so lets the cooking begin..
