Fun Fact

The optimum salinity for Pacific oysters is between 20 and 35 parts per thousand (ppt). They can be found in salinities as high as 38 ppt. At this level, however, reproduction is unlikely to occur.

Product Preparation

Briny Hood Canal oysters are wonderful raw on the half shell. Keep plenty of fresh lemon on hand to cut through the salt. They also add a crisp flavor to tomato based stews, bisques and soups. You may even roast, bake, broil or grill them with a bit of lemon.

Product Nutrition

Oysters are always a nutritious choice in seafood. Low in fat and high in protein, they provide excellent amounts of Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
