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.
Here we show you how to store, shuck and enjoy 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!
Sustainability & Provenance
The Porthilly Pacific Oysters we source are grown in the tidal waters of the stunning Camel Estuary, near Rock, on the North Cornish Coast.

We have just finished a plate on Tagliatelle Vongole with your clams. One didn’t open, one cracked, the rest of the kilo were sweet, tender and tasty. We will be back for more. Brilliant sourcing.
