Oysters - East Coast, Delaware Bay, Wild, USA
The beautifully rounded shell of the Delaware Bay Oyster, once shucked, reveals a gem. Its plump, firm meat is slightly briny, with a nutty sweetness that makes it an excellent all around oyster.
Region & Fishery
Oysters are filter feeders, siphoning up to 25 gallons of water a day through their system.
The firm, fat meat of Delaware Bay Oysters makes them quite versatile. Serve them raw, or broil them with cheese sauce a la Mornay. You may also deep fry them to be enjoyed with a homemade tartar sauce, or make them the main event in your favorite stews and chowders.
The Delaware Bay Oyster is low in fat and high in protein. It’s also a deliciously good source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
