Sometimes the best things come in small packages, which is why Cliff Point petite oysters are a best seller.

Serve them on the half shell as an amuse-bouche or serve them as charbroiled oysters directly from the grill. For fresh oyster enthusiasts, our Tidepoint oysters feature a medium brine that leaves behind a crisp, clean taste.

How to Eat Oysters

There are many ways to enjoy oysters based on your personal preferences. Raw oysters are a popular option paired with a touch of lime and a fresh salad. You can also create a stunning meal out of charbroiled oysters if you prefer your seafood cooked. There is no rule on how to eat oysters other than to make sure you are eating them as fresh as possible.

Smaller oysters can be swallowed whole directly from their shell. Most people like to savor the taste of their fresh oysters, and chewing helps to develop their full flavor. Most raw oysters are served with a cocktail sauce or companion condiment of Champagne mignonette sauce. The best flavor comes by sucking the meat directly from the shell, but you can also use a small shell food fork to loosen them first.

Tips on Shucking Oysters

Once you have some of our fresh raw oysters in hand, then it’s time to gobble them up. But, you have to shuck them first! Shucking oysters seems complicated, but it’s actually pretty basic. The oysters have a front and back, and two curved sides. If you have a strong grip, then you can simply take an oyster knife and pop the shell by cracking open the back. However, you may end up with more shells in the meat than you prefer. An easier way for shucking oysters that is also beginner friendly is to take a small paring knife and slide it under in between the front edges of the raw oyster shell. Poke the knife into the gap and gently lever it back and forth. Once you get a little space, turn the knife 90 degrees, slide the knife into the shell and slice the muscle to release the top shell.
