- Fresh oysters. Describe the taste.
I don’t mind an oyster, but don’t know if I really, really like them or think I should like them.
However, having had some Morcombe Bay and Lismore ones for lunch the other day ( Morcombe ones were much plumper) I wondered if I could describe the taste.
So….salty, fresh, slight smoke. Taste of the sea. My wife suggested “Like cold, wet salty bogies”.
So…..how would you describe them?Posted 4 years agono_eyed_deerMember
They are like concentrated essence of the pure sea! Remember when you were a kid – and you headed into the sea face first on a windy sunny summer’s day? All that salty spray driven freshness and deep green seawater loveliness, rinsing through your senses?
That’s what eating oysters is like – but in concentrated form. For me anyways…
Just don’t try the ones from Essex, or you will go down with Norovirus, like I’ve had (twice) :-/Posted 4 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
I love oysters and I also spend a lot of time in the sea. (2 things not connected). I disagree that they taste of the sea. The liquor is only faintly salty.
I like them raw with lemon juice, and/or tabasco, chopped shallot and vinegar, salt and pepper and other trimmings – not all at once though.
They’e also lovely grilled.
I also disagree that the seaside “smells of the sea”. What you can smell is rotting seaweed.Posted 4 years ago
