Shuck Um, Suck Um, Eat Um Raw!!!
Monday, 23 August 2010
If you ain't ever had um you do won't understand what I'm talking about.  Image
Margaret and I been living in Bonaire for about 3 years now. One thing I think about from time to time is the Great Cooking, Food and Restaurants in New Orleans. Don't get me wrong, Bonaire has some Great Restaurants and we love the food here but there's something about Raw Oysters, Crawfish, Shrimp & Oyster Po-Boys.
I was talking about this with my friend Patrice who owns Bistro De Paris, or as we call it Paris Bistro. It's one the best restaurants in Bonaire and our favorite place to eat.
A few weeks later Patrice called me  to come over to the restaurant and that he had something for me. When I arrived he handed me a gift, two dozen raw oysters that he had ordered for me and had flew in from France. WOW. Image
Well I had never eaten oysters from France but as I had this opportunity and I was going to make the most of it. I went shopping at a few stores to get what I was looking for: Horseradish, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, lemon, and Saltine crackers. Image No Dixie beer in Bonaire but I had some Polar's & Corona's in the fridge that worked just fine. I didn't have my oyster knife with me (lost in Katrina) as I though I would see an oyster again but I improvised screwdriver and a couple of knives. Interesting note when you shuck European Oysters start from the opposite end away from the hinge. Use a sharp knife and cut towards the hinge.
Man let me tell you the Oysters were Salty and Oh So Good, the perfect size. It was such a feeling of New Orleans, for a while I thought I was at Acme Oyster House in the French Quarter except I was under my Palm Trees in the Caribbean at our resort. Freaking Awesome...  Image

Patrice thank you so much. I'll end with with I started with:  If you ain't ever had um you do won't understand what I'm talking about.
