In the brackish waters where fresh river water meets the salty Atlantic ocean, oysters thrive and grow plump and large. Bring the bounty of the Atlantic to your tables with these Handy whole East Coast oysters! These East Coast oysters (Crassostrea virginica) are known for their large size. These meaty oysters have cream-colored flesh that becomes ivory when cooked; their flavor is full-bodied and salty, with a creamy texture and a briny finish. To ensure their purity, these oysters are high-pressure processed and nitrogen frozen, guaranteeing you the freshest flavor! They're also available year-round for a dependable supply you can count on. These oysters are left whole to ensure great presentation, but they're easy to shuck - no shucking tools or skills required! To safely thaw these oysters, place them on a sheet pan and thaw under refrigeration for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. You can also submerge them in cold water for approximately 35 minutes until fully thawed. Once thawed, oysters can keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

These East Coast oysters are perfect for serving on the half shell. Remove their top shells and display them on a bed of ice with dainty lemon slices, tart mignonette sauce, and pungent horseradish; your customers will love slurping these oysters right off the shell! Try diversifying your raw bar or brunch menu by serving oysters on the half shell with verdant chimichurri sauce or lively Bloody Mary mignonette. These oysters can also be cooked in a variety of ways to expand your seafood offerings. They can be grilled, baked, broiled, fried, or even stewed. Grill these half shell oysters with Thai basil butter for a simple yet delicious starter, or bake them with spinach artichoke dip for a decadent appetizer! Try your hand at traditional New Orleans fare by using these oysters to create luxuriant Oysters Rockefeller, or remove them from their shell, dredge them in cornmeal breading, fry them up, and use them to make a classic, hearty po'boy sandwich. With a whole host of applications, these whole East Coast oysters are sure to become a favorite on your menu!
