I never thought of myself as a big oyster fan. I'd eat one here and there to keep my husband company while he sucked down a plateful, but I was never enamored of the slimy, slurpable little creatures.
[Face it, they are not cute.]
Then I attended a Legal Sea Food oyster tasting, and I've been dreaming of those briny babies ever since. I must have eaten 20 oysters that day -- scads of raw ones, including my favorites, seawater-filled delights from Prince Edward Island, as well as fried, pickled, and baked varieties. I just couldn't stop.
Legal Sea Foods is putting an emphasis on its oysters this month, with special menu items such as marscapone baked oysters, pickled oyster and cucumber salad, and oyster stew.
Even if you're squeamish, you should sample a few raw oysters, too. They're supposedly aphrodesiacs, right? And isn't it almost Valentine's Day?
