Smoked Oysters in Olive Oil
I don't like smoked oysters. But my husband loves these oysters in olive oil so much that I have ordered cases of them from Amazon twice already.
We used to be able to get this brand of Crown Prince Smoked Oysters in Olive Oil at our local supermarket, but recently we have not seen them on the shelves in any of the supermarkets where we live. The markets do carry various brands of smoked oysters in cottonseed oil or with chilies but these do not taste as good as the olive oil variety.
How to eat these oysters, you ask? First, make sure to have a fresh loaf of French or Italian bread on hand (of course any fresh bread that you enjoy will do but these are my husband’s favorites). Then carefully open a can of oysters and arrange the oysters on a salad plate. Slice the bread – not too thin or too thick. Use a fork to put an oyster on your bread and take a bite. If you want to take a break from eating the oysters, sop up some of the olive oil with your bread. If you like the oysters, you should also like the taste of olive oil dipped bread.
I don’t know about saving the open can of oysters for another day, so plan to eat an entire can or share with a friend! If you buy multiple cans at once as we do, you will have plenty around for months of enjoyment! And, even if you do find them at the store, you will likely save money by purchasing these Crown Prince oysters in quantity.
Here are the same smoked oysters in olive oil in a 9 can quantity. We haven't tried the clams, but they may be great too!
