Buy Atlantic Oysters Online

East Coast, or Atlantic, oysters are slightly saltier in taste and narrower in shape than their Pacific oyster counterparts. Their salty composition becomes more apparent the warmer the water they once inhabited. With a chewier, meatier flesh, these East Coast oysters are often fried and dipped in remoulade and other boldly seasoned dressings.

Types of Atlantic Oysters

At FultonFishMarket.com, we have several Atlantic oysters to choose from, including the French Kiss, Naked Cowboy, and Pink Moon. We carry both shucked and unshucked, wild and farmed. So how is each unique? The French Kiss is typically brinier with a finish that is subtly sweet. Does it suit its name? The Naked Cowboy, on the other hand, is more crisp and savory in taste, and its texture is unbelievably smooth. If you are looking for a cleaner and creamier bite, the Pink Moon is the right choice for you.

Our assortment of East Coast oysters includes one shucked option, which saves a step when adding the shellfish to your recipes. Both our farmed and wild catch are from waters we trust. No matter where we procure our seafood, we ensure quality and sustainability are up to the highest of standards.

Preparing East Coast Oysters

The East Coast is not known to shy away from the frying oil. While fried oysters are very popular, you may also choose to broil or steam. It is common to serve oysters on the half shell, presented atop one side of their shell, when entertaining guests. The salty undertones are paired well with sweet wines, tangy dressings, and flavorful spices.
