FISH OF THE WEEK

 

Tear drop in shape, East Coast Oysters have a smooth shell and post a saltier flavor than their West Coast counterparts. Being filter feeders, the oyster takes on the flavor of their surroundings. If an outer is closer to the ocean, it will be saltier. If grown near a river, it will be milder with a sweet flavor. The variety is endless. Find your favorite!
