Oysters - West Coast, Stretch Island, Farmed, USA
Rather small in size, Stretch Island Oysters are cultivated in the Puget Sound of Washington. Sweet and briny at first, you’ll definitely note hints of celery, as well as a faint copper-like finish.
Region & Fishery
The oyster is immobile. For that reason, it looks to cling onto objects such as shipwrecks.
The complexity of Stretch Island Oysters needs to be enjoyed raw, on the half shell. They’re bold enough to stand up to fresh horseradish and hot sauce, as well as the traditional squeeze of lemon.
Stretch Island Oysters are low in fat and high in protein. They also pack good amounts of minerals such as Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
