Choice Grade Oysters: Choice grade oysters have a rounded top and come to a distinctive point at the bottom of the oyster called the "hinge". They have a deep "bowl" or "cup" that contains the oyster meat and holds the delicious natural juices or "liquor".
Choice grade oysters are more visually pleasing and easier to shuck then a "standard grade" oyster and for this reason they are more desired by restaurants and oyster connoisseurs and are therefore sold for a premium price.
Oysters are naturally loaded with Omega-3 and vitamins A, B (1, 2, and 3), C, and D. All of which your body needs on a daily basis to function and stay in tip-top condition. They're gluten-free as well. Oysters have a naturally high zinc count, which you need to maintain your body's immune system. They also have very little fat.
The ultimate compliment to your fresh shucked oysters. Mignonette is dressing for oysters made from wine vinegar, shallots, salt, pepper and a pinch of lime juice. Available in a 2oz or a 4oz container.
