    I've tried Pacific a couple of times and been very disappointed. After dredge they are just not oysters, more slightly salty watery goo.

    The cooking does seem to intensify the flavour that I love. Raw is damned good too. Trouble with having oysters here is that the boss likes them too.

    She's too smart to let me get away with that too many times I reckon.

    I was shown to go straight into the hinge. If they aren't a mongrel of an oyster the tip of the knife goes in pretty easy. As soon as that is busted, do the sweep on the top and shes done.
    Maybe bring a couple to pengys and Ill see if I still can do it lol

    The Penguin lives literally a few minuets from them so I recon we should send him to get some .....I am dubious of eating any shelfish that is high and dry at low tide raw tho so those will have to be cooked for me.

    You are strange!

    Oysters need to be raw, nothing on them (lemon, balsamic onion, etc....), and at close to room temp( think of whiskey chilled....).
    Cooked is OK if they have been frozen....

    I used to be able to eat them raw.
    After I got crook on them I couldn't eat them for years. Back to loving them cooked. Maybe be able to eat them raw again one day.

    This does remind me of my father's liking for these delicate morsels. He preferred them raw too. Anyway, he got given this can of several dozen that he put aside for a special occasion. Unfortunately he left the flat can a little too long and it took on the general shape of an LPG bottle. He very carefully carried the can down the path to the garden where he put the fork into it to drop the pressure. The stink was something else so he beat a retreat to a safer spot upwind, leaving the fork tynes embedded. These would be this big phzzz, then a ping as one would work it's way past the forks and launch though the air. Oh, and the look of despair on his face with every single one that took flight.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
