Do You Eat Oysters ?

My wife has never eaten an oyster and will never eat one. Actually, we are a family of oyster eaters. My three sons and I would usually eat with gusto a lot of big sized oysters that we usually order at restaurants along the sea shores. While we enjoy eating oysters, my wife will be eating her favorite fried chicken leg, dipped in oyster sauce, but no oyster. We have discussed this matter several times with my wife, but still, no matter how she forces herself to eat one, she just cannot do it. Otherwise, she just throws up. How about you, do you like or dont you like oysters ?

yes, i do eat oyster... but not too often... and it is not my favourite food... i prefer to eat prawn, crab or calamari... i think they taste better than oyster... :-)

I've never tried them so I shouldn't shoot them down, but I've been to Florida a couple times and there were a lot of people eating oysters and I don't think I could do it. I squirm.

i am not a fan of oysters. I do however, like oyster sauce. I normally don't buy oysters because they are very expensive and my family does not is not a big fan of seafood.

Indeed,people living far from the seacoast would normaly shy away from buying seafoods like fish and oysters because of its high cost. Thanks for sharing, jazzygdc

Yeah. I think you've got to work early on converting her. Otherwise she might just become like my wife. pendragon, I appreciate your sharing.

I absolutely love oysters and eat them whenever I can (as long as I trust the source). My favourite way to eat them is fresh, "au naturel" with a squeeze of lemon. They taste of the sea, and I find that very refreshing. They are also high in zinc which is good for you.

urbangirl,when you wrote 'they taste of the sea and I find that very refreshing', I can very well note your fondness for oysters and your love for the sea. Thank you for sharing, urbangirl.

Oh, man. when it comes to oysters, i'm just a sucker for them. I simply love it and so does my wife. There's something special about its taste that reminds us of the sea. As for it being an aphrodisiac... maybe it's all up in the head... and just makes you feel happy, not unlike chocolates.

I love to eat oysters. I usually eat it fresh from the shell and sometimes I dipped it in a calamansi juice.

And that's one of the problem when you live far from the coastline. Thanks for sharing, shan_ab.

Of course, if you have the stomach to eat sushi, then I'm pretty sure you'll find no problem eating oysters. Thanks, mandie_mae
