    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?

    Salty with a mild fish taste lovely with fresh lemon and tabasco. I’m off up the West Coast of Scotland soon I’ll be enjoying the fresh ones when up there.

    Taste of the sea. Once described to me as like licking snot off the back of a tortoise. I quite like them.

    Not a lot tbh. Had them once in the us as they were only 50cents each. Could not see what the fuss was about.

    They do taste of the sea and IMO are best eaten within sight of where they were caught. To be honest like them best with vinegar and shallots which is mostly then what they taste of much in the same way that snails taste of parsley, garlic and butter

    Raw and unflavoured. They taste like the sea and they’re very good for the health. Win win.

    Whatever happened to “only when there’s an R in the month?”
    No wonder they taste like bogies…

    Product of a heavy bronchial infection, salted.

    They taste of the sea. I can take them or leave them. I mostly take them if someone else is buying.

    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) :-/

    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.
