    Cook? Oysters? Why? All they need is lemon and tabsco sauce.

    I had some raw oysters yesterday. A little horseradish. A little vinegar. YUM!

    I've never cooked them. I've had the canned, smoked ones. Just need a fork and some salt.

    Never!!!! Must eat raw. Luckily we have many local sources, I could eat 4 dozen at a sitting!

    I had some down South that were prepared like shrimp scampi. Butter, garlic, chives. Done on a grill. They were very good.

    Steamed is another way people who can't handle them raw eat them. At a lot of restaurants, they won't even prepare them raw to avoid litigation. I personally only like them raw.

    Oyster Po'Boys are popular in The South. They are breaded and fried and stuck on a bun with tomato and shredded lettuce, mayo and ketchup or remoulade. I suppose you could batter them in coconut flour, fry them in lard, and serve them them with home-made Remoulade* in a Primal basket!

    *If you don't want any sugar from the ketchup, substitute with tomato paste and lemon juice or vinegar

    Raw, with a bit of lemon juice and horseradish. I don't indulge very often, but yum.

    The only other ways I've had them (besides raw) were in stew and sautee'd in butter. I really liked the sautee'd ones - they have a very light texture and would work well with a number of dishes.

    I almost forgot the Embrochette. Shrimp and oyster wrapped in bacon on a skewer and grilled.
