Always wondered what those things tasted like....don't have the courage to actually eat one though. Don't they wiggle down your throat! :eek:

Athenaeus, do you mean raw mussels? I have never had them raw before.

Yum! A squeeze of lemon, a dash of Tabasco and down it goes! The perfect diet food, too. Lots of balanced protien, no fat, few carbs and calories. Not to mention that a dozen will fill you up for a whole day!
Love 'em.
Shucked a dozen for Tony Curtis on a nude beach one time, but that's another story...

On my BD, hubby shucked a dozen beautiful oysters as a starter. On my last oyster, I felt something in my mouth..a tiny, nearly oval shaped pearl.

Raw clams and oysters are incredible. But with every raw food experience there's a caveat...be sure you get them from a reputable source and let your nose be your last line of defense. If the oyster offends in any way, it should never make it to your mouth.

Raw oysters are the best aphrodesiac ;).

I've never had raw mussels but how intriguing! I can eat bowls of them cooked. And isn't conch rubbery when raw?

On the cooked side, I love oyster stew. Baked oysters are great too.

Don't believe everything.....

Oysters as an aphrodisiac? The last time I ate a dozen raw oysters only six worked!
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

Congratulations, Sean

You are on your way to being a true food professional. Taste, taste, taste! Be brave!!! and you'll find delicious wonders.

Oysters are one of my absolute favorite foods -- raw first, with just a squeeze of lemon; also in stews, pan roasts, fried ... and clams, and mussels, and urchins, and ... :lips: :lips: :lips:

Chiffonade makes a good point: be careful. Around this time of year, Gulf oysters can be tainted (algae blooms and all that :( ) And if, g-d forbid, you get sick from an oyster, let the place you got it from know! You might save others' lives that way.

Tried 'em, can't stand 'em. Oysters are not for me in any shape or form.

Still prefer my other shellfish cooked to raw though raw's not bad.

Raw oysters... oh, yeah! I only eat the kosher ones. :lol:

To me they have the texture of a soft boiled egg and the sublime flavor of the sea. I do like a dash of Tabasco and a spritz of lemon on mine. Sadly, we do have to be careful of where they come from, as pollution and poor handling can be deadly.

Strangely, I can't stand cooked oysters, although I will choke down a well-made oyster stew when provoked.

You chop them and you put them in your mouth just like that???

PS Pete, yes, raw mussels, they are great :)

You eat small clams raw the same way you eat oysters: shuck them add a little cocktail sauce (or lemon and tabasco) and down the hatch!
