Porthilly Oysters Live - 1 Dozen

From £18.00 Per Dozen

The Porthilly Pacific Oysters we source are grown in the tidal waters of the stunning Camel Estuary, near Rock, on the North Cornish Coast. The Marshall family have been farming the land and sea here for 5 generations, and their oysters are a culinary delight - don't just take our word for it, they recently won Gold in the The British Oyster Championship! These are wonderfully fresh when eaten in the traditional manner, giving a burst of fresh saltiness with a sweet, rich, creamy finish. 6 Oysters is enough as a starter for 2.

  • Award winning Oysters grown on the North Cornish Coast
  • Fully sustainable and 'Recommended' by the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide
  • A true super-food bursting at the seams with essential minerals and vitamins
  • We recommend they are eaten fresh with lemon, pepper and a drop of tabasco

Recipes & Cooking

Oysters can be shucked and eaten fresh on their own, but we prefer a little something with them, even if it is simply a glass of Camel Valley Sparkling Pink! Lemon, pepper and tabasco works well as does a simple Mignonette Sauce, which you could make at home or order one of Chef Adams when you buy your Oysters.

Health & Nutrition

The impressive health benefits of oysters come from their vast stockpiles of minerals, vitamins, and organic compounds. In fact, certain minerals are in their highest content in oysters, meaning that they are the premiere food item in the entire world for their supplementation, particularly of zinc. They have very high levels of protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, copper, manganese, and selenium. They also contain high levels of niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Finally, they are a huge source of beneficial cholesterol, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and water. If that is not a superfood, then I don't know what is! Oh....and it can have aphrodisiac benefits too!
