Consider the Oyster: Oyster Recipes, Eating, and Cooking Tips

As every oyster lover knows, whether you prefer to bake, boil, broil, fry, stew, steam, smoke, pickle, or serve them raw, oysters are a very tasty and versatile food indeed.

High in Vitamin B12 and purported to be an aphrodisiac, to paraphrase Jonathan Swift, it may have been, “a brave man indeed that ‘et the first oyster”, but I’ll bet once he did he was a very happy one too.

Below are 10 delicious links to resources to help you enjoy the oysters you cook at home, eat in restaurants, or gorge on at local oyster roasts.

Here in Charleston, oyster roasts are to coastal South Carolina what crawfish boils are to Louisiana; a treasured if slightly intimidating local institution that should not be missed. If you worship the craggy bivalve but have never been to an oyster roast, you can find out how good roasts work and how to make the most of them in the handy links below.

Looking for even more oysterrific recipes? You’ll find some more at the bottom of this article.

Enjoy (and happy eating)!
