What is Oyster?
The oyster is an ocean dwelling mollusk with a hard shell protecting its soft body. Oysters served as a food generally have a white and grey shell of 2-3 inches. The shell pops open when the oyster is cooked, revealing a plump, springy and juicy oyster with a misshapen oblong body, white flesh and brown/grey edges. Raw oysters have a slightly translucent body and a slippery texture with a gentle chew to them. The flavor is mild, briny and sometimes coppery with a seafood/fishy taste.
