    I prefer oysters overall just because they're easier to deal with. In a can, they have a much nicer texture than clams. Fresh, they're a little more forgiving. Over cook clams, and they're as rubbery as pigs feet.

    i only ever get them fresh in the shell and oysters are difficult to shuck without at least one self stabbing incident.

    You don't have to cook kelp noodles to soften them. They just need a little bit of acid and...poof!...instant soft. Spaghetti sauce tends to make them almost glue like in texture though. Experiment with a splash of lemon juice or acv in the water while heating.

    Zinc and selenium, right? Clams still rank pretty high in both of those as far as RDA goes. I like both, but prefer chopped clams to oysters. I'll have both pretty often but think clams are underrated!

    Copper too, and a lot less iron. Both are cool though!

    You can get kelp noodles at asian grocery stores usually.
    I got mine at a Korean one in a refrigerated section and they were about $1.49 for 16 ounces of salted kelp...had to soak them in water a long time for it to lose the saltiness though
