Fresh Oysters?Had a half dozen Royal Miyagis last night with just a little Lemon to compliment the creamy sweet little darlings and was wondering about all the condiments some Oysters are served with-Citrus, Red Hot Sauces, Vinegar all kinds of stuff.
Myself I think the accompanying wine is most important but that's just me.
And You-how do you take your fresh Oysters-with what if anything?

4Oysters go well with beer. I like a touch of hot cocktail sauce on mine, but am also happy just having them naked. Then again, I don't think I have ever had oysters that I didn't like.
I was actually talking to someone who goes goose hunting on Maryland's Eastern Shore and have perhaps wrangled my way to an invitation to join them. I pointed out that I haven't shot in years and probably can't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside. He asked if I liked oysters. Apparently they go pick up oyster off the boat and then spend all day in the blind steaming and eating oysters.

9For me it depends on my mood and the oyster. I always like a squeeze of lemon on them and sometimes I put a dab of hot sauce, cocktail sauce and/or horseradish. Some of the oysters I've had have been a bit bland and needed a bit of spicing up and some didn't even need the lemon. I had one batch once that were so salty I was tempted to put a bit of sugar on it (I didn't).
I've never thought about putting mayo on raw oysters, although a restaurant we used to go to served cornmeal encrusted fried oysters with a cayenne pepper mayo dipping sauce that were absolutely amazing!

12"Or Chien" is argueably one of the most popular dishes around Chinese hawker stalls in SE Asia.
This is blazing "hot wok" fried oyster omelette/pancake done with a small drizzle of lard oil,diced garlic,Chinese chives,a couple of eggs,a drizzle of chilli vinegar paste,a touch of soy/fish sauce,and a tiny pinch of brown sugar.
The dish is thickened with a bit of potato/(or tapoica) powder diluted with a table spoon of water to form a slightly gluey,crispy on the edge pancake omelette.

13Fresh Oysters? ...are Dead?,... you would think that live oysters are available in Vancouver, at this time of year.Eh

14Who said that HNH had dead oysters?
When I temporarily lived in Maryland, the folks at my lab gleefully told me a story about a colleague, a newcomer from the middle of the country somewhere, who had never had oysters. They went out to lunch one day and someone ordered raw oysters. He offered the newbie one, and just as she began to chew, he said "they're alive, you know." She never did develop a taste for oysters.
