Oysters - East Coast, Flowers, Farmed, USA
Cultivated on Long Island, New York, Flower Oysters are a good choice for those new to the oyster experience. Their meats are plump and very tender, with a fairly light brine and a buttery, nutty flavor that’s mild and pleasant.
Region & Fishery
The Ancient Greeks enjoyed oysters sautéed in honey.
Bake these Flower Oysters with spinach that has been sautéed with butter, garlic and shallots for a terrific Oysters Rockefeller. The meats are also tender enough to add to omelets, stews, bisques, taco fillings and seafood rice dishes.
The Oyster boasts an amazing source of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids. It’s low in fat and high in protein, too!
