Porthilly Oysters - Half-Dozen

From £8.00 Per Half-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 superfood bursting at the seams with essential minerals and vitamins
  • We recommend they are eaten fresh with lemon, pepper and a drop of Tabasco

Oysters are best eaten within 2 days of receipt

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 Stus 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!

Clams

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.

Freshness of the Sea

Hi Paul & Team Thank you all so much for the Valentines Hamper Special! It arrived: on time, in perfect condition and filled the kitchen with the freshness of the sea! We enjoyed it all but especially the beautiful impressive lobster - most flavoursome we've ever eaten this side of the Tamar! A real delicious treat and terrific surprise for my husband Alan! All the best to you and hope these storms abate soon and are not causing you too much havoc! Saw pictures of Fore Street, Fowey flooded!

It's best when it's fresh!

Love all sea food but became disappointed with what the best supermarket chains could offer .. the only great sea food is when its fresh .. Had two deliveries from FFT both perfect keep up the good work ..Its just not the quality of your fish and shellfish its also the fantastic delivery service from DPD with there 1 hour time slot second to none - great combination
