How Do You Like Your Oysters?

A while back, you told us that you love oysters. We do, too! My favorite way to enjoy them is on the half shell, with a little bit of soy sauce and green onion. I have friends who will only eat cooked oysters, though, and I know a few people who prefer to eat them with no dressing whatsoever. Tell me: how do you eat your oysters?

Oh my goodness. You just reminded me that I am due for some oysters. I haven't had them in what seems like forever. I like mine with lemon, a couple drops of tabasco, and lots of salt (I'm a bit of a saltaholic). Mmmmm...delicioso!!

I love fire roasted oysters with a little garlic butter and a piece of bread to sop up the juice. Yum!

i don't eat oysters. i've never been a fan of them, even before i stopped eating any meat/fish/chicken. i think that they scare me a bit..and are just NOT my thing.

I think I'd eat them pretty much however they were served, but I've only ever had them raw or BBQ'd. With different types of sauces dabbed on them :)

one of my favorite foods. i like them most with lots of lemon and a lil bit of cocktail sauce but just lemon is also delish since cocktail sauce sometimes overpowers the taste of the oyster itself....mmmm i want oysters now!

I haven't had an oyster in years and years, but when I did the texture just grossed me out.

I LOVE oysters Rockefeller! I will eat them anyway they are tossed at me, as long as they are cooked. Raw oysters are one of the very few things in the world that I just can't eat.

On a cracker w/ some Texas Pete. Yum! I've just moved to Texas from SC and I am sure going to miss oyster roasts this winter.

I like them too many ways: ~ raw with a squeeze of lemon; a dollop of horseradish and a drop of cocktail sauce; ~ fried; ~ grilled; ~ boiled in with a whole lotta other seafood (i.e. a seafood boil); ~ cooked up on a pot of oyster stew; ~ cooked up in a batch of oyster dressing; ~ in a shot glass with tequila and lime juice; ~ in a shot glass with vodka and cocktail sauce; ~ nekked Probably my least favorite is Rockefeller, but it could be I haven't had it prepared well. I'm pretty much willing to try oysters any way prepared. I've never tried with soy sauce and green onion either - may have to give that a whirl~
