12 Loch Fyne Rock Oysters
The taste of an individual oyster very much reflects the environment in which it is grown – from open sea sites and bays to sea lochs with lower salt levels. After 2-3 years of care and attention, our oysters reach marketable size. Once harvested, every oyster is graded and purified in filtered natural seawater here at Cairndow.
Opening Loch Fyne Oysters
Rinse with drinking water prior to opening.
Open immediately before consuming (within one hour).
Hold the oyster cup side down on a firm surface with the pointed hinge end facing you.
You may find it helpful to place a folded tea towel or cloth on top of the oyster.
Please the tip of a short blunt knife at the hinge of the shell at an angle of 45°.
Press hard while wiggling the knife until the tip has entered the shell.
Once the knife blade is inside the shell, make a sweeping cut under the top lid to loosen the oyster and remove the top shell.
Loosen the oyster meat from the bottom shell by gently runnig the knife under the flesh.
This product is ready to consume without cooking and must be alive when sold.
Live oysters will have tightly closed shells and a pleasant odour.
Tapping two healthy oysters together will give a sharp sound like pebbles on a beach.
To eat "au naturel" add lemon juice, vinegar seasoning or Tabasco sauce.
