    "Shucked Pacific Oysters" Louise W R on 09/19/2020 08:36 Review: First order for these. Wonderful! Very large, execellent quality. Will definitely order again.

    "The VERY Best!" Snookie on 09/25/2020 02:46 Review: These are the nuts! The shelf life is wonderful and you can take out as many as you require at a single time. Sure beats those in a jar. This is the way to go. Thanks for the innovation.

    "Shucked Oysters" RANDY S on 09/24/2020 05:25 Review: These oysters fry up so easily and nicely. Delicious. In summer, we have them with pesto and pasta. Our favorite when not having live oysters. We've purchased many times and will again. Delivery is fast, everything packed is cold/frozen. Boxes provide easy storage in our freezers.

  • Serving/Care

    Storage

    Keep frozen at or below 0° Fahrenheit (-18° Celsius) until ready to use.

    Oysters frozen under these conditions should retain their quality for at least six to 12 months. NOTE: Oysters stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

    Thawing and handling instructions

    To thaw, place the frozen oysters in a colander or sieve and place inside a bowl. Cover loosely and let thaw slowly in the refrigerator, at or below 38° F (3° C).

    For quick-thawing, place unopened bag in cool water for 20 to 30 minutes, just until oysters are fully flexible.

    Prior to cooking, do not allow oysters to reach temperatures above 38° F (3° C).

    Once thawed, rinse gently with cool water to dissolve any remaining ice crystals, then cook immediately until done. Be careful not to overcook.

    Note: Consumption of raw or partially cooked oysters creates a risk of serious illness, especially to people with medical conditions that compromise immunity. Vulnerable individuals should avoid eating raw or partially cooked oysters.

    Serving suggestions*

    Enjoy our oysters in diverse delicious ways:

    • Make oyster tempura.
    • Add to holiday dressings.
    • Serve in stews and bisques.
    • Bake, grill, steam, or poach and serve with pesto and savory sauces.
    • Fry: Dip oysters in milk, then seasoned flour, and pan-fry quickly in extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil.

    *Note: Consumption of raw or partially cooked shellfish creates a risk of serious illness, especially to people with medical conditions that compromise immunity. Vulnerable individuals should avoid eating raw or partially cooked shellfish.
