Flat Oysters N°1 from Normandy – 24 pieces

Small and flat, she is the original oyster, the native. She will take your taste buds back in time as she is the oyster that Romans would savour and she is the oyster that rippiers brought to Paris for Louis the 14th to devour. You will most certainly appreciate her singular, iodised, almost peppery and almost indescribable character.

Description

First product of the sea labeled in 1989

The fine de claire is for those who prefer a less fleshy oyster. These oysters are finished for several weeks in shallow clay ponds where they acquire a superior quality shell to oysters grown in the open sea.

It is during this process that the claires of the Marennes Oléron basin impart the subtleties of regional flavours.

Finished in claires for a minimum of 28 days (between November and March), maximum density 3 kg per square metre

How to serve and an oyster?

Typically, raw oysters are served on the half shell with plenty of lemon for squeezing, Tabasco sauce and shallot vinaigrette (mignonette). Make sure they are still live (shell needs to be tighly close). Think about removing the first juice after having them shucked as the oyster will recreate a new one much more flavourful. Serve and eat the opened oyster in the coming hour.
