Looks like I'm stuck with oysters tonight. September being one of the "r" months I splurged today.
Lucky you. I wouldn't mind being stuck with oysters. We can get them in Phnom Penh but I don't completely trust the transportation is always at the right temperature if they're local oysters coming from the coast and the ones coming from France are so expensive I've only had them for Christmas 2006.
Don't blame you hw,. That's the way I feel about the aforementioned delicacy. You should put NOLA on your list of destinations when you come to The USA. Although,the East Coast also has great oysters ,but very expensive.
Even our favorite marisquería in Pátzcuaro doesn't refrigerate its shellfish before opening them. I won't eat them, but a friend has, with no ill effects. He did say that some oysters on the 1/2 shell he'd had recently were very strongly flavored.
Once, I watched as he ate a plate of Patas de Mulas shellfish, with their ribbed shells and black liquor. Smelled strong to me. Not necessarily spoiled, just strong.

Wait until you see the picture of the seafood Mr. T & I had last Monday night at a little seafood place right around the corner from the apartment. Wow!!!! You have to wait because I don't want to download any thing right now.

No wonder you ate there so often That would satisfy me every day for awhile as well. And those prices,wow,what a bargain. When I reflect on the price of scallops in NY,well,let's see, I believe they were $15.00USD per pound,some places more. Restaurant prices for same,forget iy,and you only got a small handful. Where do the clams come from hw? Did you have them steamed in broth or eat them raw? The photo appears they were steamed open.
