Shellfishness





For both of my readers (if you're still out there), an oyster
for the ages.  Blue Point, Long Island (NY) oyster, with a
mignonette of shallot, ginger, black pepper, rice vinegar,
red chile, and cilantro.  An orgasmic slurp of oceanic goodness.

  1. It does look good, but as far as I am concerned, nothing beats the flavor of a good oyster with no mignonette or sauce except the salt water it came with.

    1. As much as I adore the natural flavor of an oyster, I am an incurable fan of the vibrant condiment, and the Blue Point is one oyster that can stand up to a little zing, especially a big one.

    2. Vibrant condiment?

      I thought this was a family-oriented blog.

  2. I would've commented earlier but I just hacked up something that looks remarkably like that picture.

  5. Well, more than two months between posts will do that for you. I know you're alive, which is why I keep coming back -- but others may think you've decided to drop out of blogging.

    1. Nope, just sucked into the social vortex

  6. In spite of your absence on this blog, I keep watching and waiting as I don't do Face***k. NSA! NSA! Sigh.

    Can you blog about sailing rather than oysters or other animal based 'foods'?

    To your good health...
