Boy, the author, Danny B., isn't much of an oyster aficionado I take it.

The best place for oysters around here (Galveston Bay area, Texas) is Gillhooley's. Their specialty is grilled oysters with just a bit of seasoning and Parmesan cheese. They also do a version with shrimp stuffed with oysters. smiley - drool I could go for a dozen or two of those right now.

They also do them raw on the half shell as well.

Their supplier farms them locally and makes sure they're clean and a bit irradiated to kill microbes.


Ummm... delicious...

I agree with count Zero,

Danny b. does not like oysters.

However, those of us who have been introduced to this sublime delicacy love them, love them and go on loving them. I did not finish danny/s article because it really was very biased!!

However, that just leaves more oysters for us who love thme = particularly with a glass of icy smiley - bubbly and a squeeze of lemon juice.

maybe a little biased smiley - winkeye I enjoyed your article it was fun and interesting. Although I must admit that I am on the oyster eating side of the debate. I personally love oysters raw on the half shell with ponzu sauce, lemon juice, a dash of chili sauce, and a few chopped green onions. yummy


Ummm... delicious...

Dear danny,

Thank goodness there are people who do not like oysters.!!

as I said before, there are more for us who love them.

I wonder what people who do not like oysters would have done in the olden days. I remember seeing a wonderful programme on TV about two men who loved oysters, emulating life at the time of the Magna carta. and how important oysters were to their diet .

Go well oh oyster-free lover of music. !!

Even though I prefer raw oysters with just a hint of freshly squeezed lemon I occasionally cook them smiley - yikes

The rationale is that I live far from where the oysters live, and when they arrive to my part of the human habitat they've been on their way for days sometimes. During those circumstances oysters in half shell topped with sour cream mixed with a hint of tabasco, finely chopped red onion and swedish caviar baked in the oven 15 minutes or so... yummy!

Now that I think about it AR80... I guess you can't taste the oyster that muchsmiley - biggrin but I do believe it adds to the over all flavor of the dish. Of course maybe thats why I like it so much
Thanks,
Cheers smiley - winkeye
