I love oysters on the 'half" shell. Do you?
What do you like with them?...lemon juice? crackers? horse radish and catsup?..eh?
Where have you gotten the best ones? They must be freshly shucked, cold and alive to be the best.
How many can ya eat at 1 sitting?
I tried an oyster one time. It was disgusting

personally, they make me want to vomit...
but thus recipe might be good for anyone who likes 'em?
yeah baked with little soy sauce plus green "citrus" for sauce, can eat full bucket hehe
To those who don't like oysters, better not read this.
Love oysters. We clean up their shells then pour hot (not boiling) water on them and leave them for a while. Then we crack them open, get the meat and dip it on vinegar with onions. It's our local version of sashimi (yum!).
Also like them baked (like Maita).
I'm with you! I like oysters anyway I can get 'em.
But, I like em best raw and alive...yummm
Love them - The most I have had raw is 6. It is an acquired taste though!
They are great on a BBQ - put the half shell on, a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, a touch of chilli - Yum.
Best steamed in their own juices! Don't care for raw though.
When I was a child, my family and another often went to the beach together. Chesapeake Bay, guess it wasn't as polluted then and still safe. The adult friends 'caught' the oysters and ate them like that; I asked to see one but it looked horrible! I've never tried them but at the Jazz Festival every year, another friend of mine gorges on them, she loves them.
What ever made you look at an oyster and think it was food?
Hahaha Good question!
Years ago I was with friends In Shreveport, LA,...we were having a few drinks and my friends ordered oysters on he 1/2 shell..
argghhhh...lol.. but after a few slurps and a couple more daqueris (spelling), I was talked into trying one...I LOVED IT!
I've been eatin' 'em "alive," ever since...
Don't knock it if ya ain't tried it....:-)
I do not care for oysters. I do enjoy little necks on the half shell.
Little necks are a New England term for small quahogs.
Lemon juice or cocktail sauce.
I love 'em to!
If it comes outa the ocean and is in a shell, I'll eat it...:-)
Scallops.. My favorite food, though I need them cooked.
I have seen others eat them raw.
I used to commercial dive for "rock scallops" in S Calif.
They and "abalone" are my absolute favorites!
Rock scallops are "sessile," easy to gather and the "meat" is butter colored and about twice the size of scallops ya get at restaurants.....deeeelicious!!
awwwww..I know this is off tpoic but ever since you said this, Ive been tryign to remeber... what aer the ohter gross molllusk thingys with huge necks? I forgot tehe name of them, they were on Dirty Jobs...
Sorry qwark - they're vile. Like a snot-filled shell. Just the sight of them makes me come close to hoofing. I'm happy to hear you like them but for me? No ta
Jeez! you swallow a mason jar'a "snot" everyday!
Only dif with oyster "snot" is ya chew it b4 ya swallow it....lolol...:-)
Now ya gota clean yer keyboard....lol :-)
Heyyyyy maybe we should drag the bible into this - like, wasn't there something somewhere that said something about oysters? Then we could all fight, fall out, go silent, sulk, come back and do it all over again
*just peeked in the religious forum - as hot as hades as ever*
nope its against shrimp..
Ya gotta get away from myth and fairytale every-once-in-a-while and chat about serious stuff like eating live oysters...eh? :-)
The very first time I had one, at the age of 12, I didn't know you were not supposed to chew them. YUK. It was pretty disgusting.
These days I love them( I know better now ).
I don't have many at any one sitting, and like them any way I have had them.
I tried one once. Couldn't get it down. The only thing available to wash it down with was orange juice at the time-- that didn't work either.
There is a reason they are served with plenty of lemon or chili or tobasco or daqueris.-- preferably with lemon chili tobasco daqueris
@Justine - I think you might mean whelks. Equally vile. My dad use to give me one, sit me outside the market on Saturdays and say 'chew it then swallow doll. Don't move until you've chewed it up small enough to eat or you'll choke'. I'd be sat chewing rubber 'til he returned then get to spit it out. I never worked out what he was doing - I was so determined to chew one of them damn things up
I love oysters roasted on the grill - especially ones from Apalachicola. Now I'm worried the oil spill will ruin them.
I can't stand oysters not even fried. My favorite seafood is fried shrimp with tartar sauce.
I can't eat Oysters.. it taste disgusting.. Man How do you do that
I love them raw, too! That's what years spent living in Japan did to me I had bad food poisoning from them last time I had them, though, and haven't had them since (been years), lol.
When ya get a bad one, ya gotta wash yer mouth and stick another one back in....lol
It's like riding a horse, if ya fall off ya gotte get right back on or yer done.....lol
I've been eating 'em for many many years and (knock on wood) never gotten sick...hada few bad'ns, but it didnt stop me..I can down 4 -5 dozen at a sitting..
Sagbee....yer a wus...lol...try 'em again! you'll love 'em..:-)
As an initiation process for a club in high school, a string would be tied to a raw oyster and after the boy to be initiated swallowed it, it was pulled back up. This way it only took a few oysters!
I hate them. My partner's alcoholic (and very large) ex-roommate once cornered me drunkenly and poured one down my throat. It was rather traumatizing.
Oysters are bad news when they just look at you with their one shaped muscle mass....they give me nightmares!
The best oyster on the half shell I've eaten are from Louisiana and N.Fla.
I was working in Shreveport LA and working out at the local YMCA.
A bunch'a my workout buds and I used to go, every thursday, to a local eatery where raw oysters were served. We'd see who could down the most before ordering a meal...lol My best was 6 doz...then,...dinner.....:-)
how about cockels? they smell nice but I think I only tried once!

A ham sandwich was left on the kitchen table all day. Hubby tried to eat it. Guy thing or not?My husband was making himself a lunch for work and in his rush he never put his prepared ham sandwich in the bag. That evening when we all returned home from our workday, he noticed it. I was about to cook...

Why don't we eat animals when they are alive?Most people eat animals when they are dead. Why don't we eat their flesh when they are alive? What do you think are the pros and cons of eating dead animals as opposed to living ones?
