How Do You Like to Eat Your Raw Oysters?

We're on vacation and had a chance to have some great, fresh seafood for dinner last night (not frozen like Red Lobster ). They were having a raw oyster special, 35 cents each. We'd never eaten them before, and to tell the truth I never thought I would. They look like big, slimy 'ol boogers to me! But. DH wanted to try them so he ordered two, to start with. The waitress brought crackers and told us she likes to dip them in cocktail sauce, put it on a cracker then squeeze a bit of lemon and eat it that way. So he did that, and liked it. I looked at the second one and decided to go for it. It was delicious!! So, we ordered another half dozen to share. They were really, really good!! Never thought I'd say that!!

I've heard of people just swallowing them right down without chewing, and kind of wonder what's the point. You wouldn't even taste them that way.

So, how do you enjoy your raw oysters?

You still taste a drink if you slurp it through a straw, right?

I like them super cold, some lemon. I chew them though, and make sure to get all the liquid. And have a nice glass of Prosecco with them.

35 cents each is great. They are never, ever under $1/each around here, and generally more like $10-$12 for a half dozen.

I like to eat them on the half shell with a little horse radish, cocktail sauce, and a squeeze of lemon.

Glad you enjoyed, love trying new foods on vacation ! No such deal here on oysters, they cost an arm and leg . DH loves them, any way, shape or form, but I can't get past their looks or feel in mouth !! I'm a crab/shrimp type of gal.

Fresh shucked oysters are awesome! I love it during oyster season, .25 each at a bar for a special is not unusual. I squeeze fresh lemon and sprinkle tabasco on them and have them on a cracker! Nice cold beer and I am good to go!!

So good. Very small spot of horseradish, a dash of Tabasco, and a squeeze of lemon. I used to slurp and swallow, but now I like to press it against the roof of my mouth with my tongue to release all the juices. So good and so hard to get in the middle of Texas.

Same here. At a buck a piece, I like to savor mine before I swallow it.

SSB is big oyster fan as grew up in fishing village on coast of SC ... I think Pat Conroy's description of "the sea made flesh" is a great and accurate one.

Yum. Raw oysters, with cocktail sauce and horseradish, is one of our staples at both Thanksgiving and on Super Bowl Sunday.

We eat them with sliced hard salami, while watching the football games. Good times.

In Ireland. With horseradish and a squeeze of lemon with a Guinness.

Seriously, since I have a thyroid disorder I'm not supposed to eat warm water oysters so living in Florida does me no good in that matter. I have to go somewhere that has cold water oysters and have found they do have them at Big Fin on Sandlake Road here.
