Oysters are one of the shellfish many people have never tried because the most common way to eat them is raw and this turns many people off to them. I understand this and that is why today for you I have an oysters on the half shell recipe that serves them in their shell but cooks them with herbs and cheese first so no risk involved in giving them a try. Now I am not going to explain how to shock the little devils there are many tutorials out there on how to do this so I am just going to present the recipe here for your consideration.
I love seafood and especial shellfish so I am trying to build up the sites shellfish selection so that you have more recipes in this category to choice from. As you know I am a New England girl and as such seafood is fresh and plentiful in our area. If you are not so lucky there are online options out there and with modern transportation there is seafood in reach of most of the country these days. Look up in the navbar there is a link to some possible options. If you are not as fortunate as me to live in area where seafood is fresh from the boat daily it is no worries there are option out there that were not available when I was a kid.
You should try and make seafood part of your weekly menu plan it is such a healthy option and in many parts of the world the main option available. Most of the world is fairly seafood dependent and as such I like to remind people to get a bit educated on the subject of sustainability. In today’s agro fish markets there are option that utilizes fish and shellfish from sustainable fisheries where these fisheries are carefully monitored to make sure there is plenty of seafood for future generations. It is kind of up to all of us as consumers to make smart buying choices that protect this valuable resource for all of us.

- Serve immediately on their shells.
There are many different ways to eat oysters and one of the most popular ways is on the half shell. Although this is a very popular way to eat and enjoy oysters many people are leery to eat raw oysters and therefore have never tried oysters on the half shell. Well in this recipe we still serve them up on their shell but we broil them first in two different kinds of cheese so the raw factor is not an issue. So if you want to try oysters this is a good way to give them a try without the possible risk of getting sick.
