We had our first Casamento's meal of the season last night, prompting today's question:
How do you eat raw oysters (assuming you do)?
I eat mine with a squeeze of lemon, a dollop of horseradish, and a dash of hot sauce, either on a saltine or straight from the half shell, depending on my fancy. It is, in my opinion, one of the supreme flavor combinations of all creation.


  1. Gotta say, a squeeze of lemon and that's it. Sometimes a saltine, sometimes a fork, sometimes slurpin from the shell.

  2. I can't do it straight from the shell, I need a saltine. I mix up a cocktail sauce using ketchup, horseradish, lemon juice, a splash of worcestershire sauce, and a dash of hot sauce - mmmm, mmmm!

  3. That's how Sarah does it (minus the Worcestershire).

  4. yes, yes, yes! your way is the way (as far as i'm concerned). oh oysters, how i miss you...
