Does anyone here eat this? Do you eat it plain or add it to something else?

I'm not fortunate enough to live in Louisiana or Mississippi where apparently you can get fresh oysters for cheap, so I need an oyster kick that I can get locally...

On top of crackers.

On a saltine with a little habenero sauce.

break out the crackers and hotsauce....

They go good with Ritz crackers...
Wash it down with red beer.

I can get them often times raw/living. I love them with a little lemon and some horseradish.

Fresh on the halfshell, when they're not poisoned by some sewage in the Chesapeake Bay.

I'd only eat them fresh, cuz thats the only way to know if they're putrid.

Cottonseed oil? bleh.

On Ritz, Club, Town House or Chicken on a Bisket crackers.

Oh yeah, a cap full of cider vinegar puts a nice tang to the oil.

Vinegar and oil are always a good combo, it compliments the oysters nicely.

yum
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 7:41:20 PM EST
on townhouse crackers and salt added. or just eating out of the can with sale and toothpicks
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 8:01:08 PM EST
Oh how funny.
I just bought 2 multi packs of these at Costo this evening.
Try them with a very light dusting of Dillo Dust and a spritz of lemon juice / Ritz crackers...
I had mine with wine tonight.
And it's been over 10 years since I've had these.

All of the above + 10
add your GF , add some Jose Cuervo,and watch her get naked. WIN

I just eat them by themselves. Sometimes I will finish off the oil in the can.

Eat them all the time, on Ritz crackers.
When I make space in the can, I soak the crakers in the oil.

Ritz crackers to be exact...for me.

Spread some cream cheese on a wheat thin, top with a smoked oyster and a dot or two of tobassco.

If you want FRESH oysters... you are gonna be disappointed.

They are a great snack.. I put a little salt on them,... cut some cheddar cheese, and get out the saltine crackers.
Link Posted: 9/18/2009 8:51:21 PM EST
Yeah Man. Smoked oysters plain or on crackers, damn good. You may get swamp ass though the next day.

I just got back from the coast and finished off a dozen. I like to roast mine on the Q and eat 'em just like that. (Every other one....I'll sprinkle with hot sauce, but hate to cover the flavor too much). I love them salt-water bugs.
Oh, and beer.

ETA: Too much beer with your bugs may seriously impair your ability in reading comprehension.

Try them with some cocktail sauce.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 3:50:33 AM EST
Good stuff.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 3:54:22 AM EST
i like to mix them with eggs and cheese

You made baby Jesus cry



And if you have to eat them out of a can/plastic bin, they ain't oysters.

Oysters must be shucked/shelled to be consumed.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 4:24:53 AM EST
the only acceptable way (other than straight from the shell) is on a saltine with cocktail sauce made with fresh horseradish
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 4:25:30 AM EST
Love them.

Tapatio hot sauce on them and eat them with Garlic and Herb (or just plain) Triscuit crackers.

Yummmmm!

or on a spinach salad with a vinagrette dressing.
with a beer.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 4:33:09 AM EST
I eat them right from the tin usually. I also use them to stuff a pork loin along with chipotle peppers and goat cheese.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 7:37:43 AM EST
i eat them all the time. never with anything, though.

cats go nuts when i pour the remaining oil over their hard food.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 7:41:14 AM EST
Yeah, I eat them, on crackers, right out of the can. They are also good in soup, like ramen, or in turkey stuffing. The ones packed in water are a little better, but neither are a substitute for fresh grilled oysters.

Just put some snot on a cracker and you'll get the same effect.

I never could get too excited about smoked oysters. I do like them a fried or raw and best of all:

Oyster shooters! Whoo, GOOD times!

They make a great trail treat.

I only eat fresh oysters at home.

Always had a few cans of the oysters and sardines on deployment and some MRE crackers with tabasco gormet in the field..
