Oysters are an amazing ingredient. There’s nothing quite like a fresh, raw oyster with just a touch of mignonette, cocktail sauce or fresh lemon juice. Oysters have a luscious briny flavor and they boast numerous health benefits. They’re low in fat and calories, a lean source of protein and heart- and brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids and they have more zinc per serving than any other food. However, the appearance and texture of a raw oyster can be a bit intimidating to a first timer, so it might be easier to start with one of these cooked oyster dishes. These recipes are delicious, easy to make at home and sure to please oyster beginners and connoisseurs alike.
