Slightly smaller, sweeter and more delicate than your average oyster, Pacific rock oysters sit plump in deep, ridged shells that provide a fine dish for serving on the half-shell. They’re full of the wild beauty of the cold, clean estuaries where they grow. Divine raw. Or after a minute on the grill, for a hint of smoke. These are “selects”––especially round, plump, and deep-cupped.
Fresh Tips: Never freeze unshelled oysters. You can refrigerate freshly-shelled oysters in their own liquor for two days, but use them as quickly as you can.
