Thanks to @cravefishbar for the free swag and oysters for winning this week's #oystergram contest! 🐚🐚🐚
Fate brought us back to a dozen of free oysters (Bluepoints, Moo Moo Islands, and Black Duck Salts). And while we were at it, we thought we might as well try the fried oyster sliders and a couple of eastern (Pearls?) from Montauk Point in Long Island and eastern Big Rocks from Cape Cod, as well as the Baja Kumamotos from Mexico once more.
The Big Rocks were a heavy hit of salt, but had clean meat, and were plump and juicy. The Montauk Points were chewy, briny, kind of creamy, with a tingling bit of copper. The Bajas, again, were so good. Their liquor surprisingly had the same taste as pacifics grown up north in the Salish Sea, even though they are from all the way down in western Mexico. I guess the cold current is to thank for that.
