Blue Point Oysters are probably the ones you’ve enjoyed if you live on the East Coast, and you frequent a Raw Bar. Medium-sized, they are mild, pleasingly salty and extremely meaty. A great choice for beginners.
Casanova, the great 18th century Italian lover, believed in starting the day with 50 oysters.
With a pleasant flavor that won’t overwhelm you, Blue Points are perfect raw on the half shell, accompanied by lemon and perhaps a squirt of hot sauce. You’ll also enjoy frying them for a New Orleans-style Po Boy sandwich with lots of tartar sauce.
True Blue Oysters are low in fat and high in protein. They also boast good amounts of minerals such as Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium and B Vitamins, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids.
