Oysters. A love or hate relationship. I’ve always been rather curious, yet sceptical towards the famous cuisine. So much so, that I decided to try it out at home. Yep- for the FIRST time! Oysters and seafood in general is loaded with good nutrients and especially proteins, healthy fats and minerals to keep us strong and healthy.
I went to ‘Fiskeriet’ in Oslo and bought a couple of different local oysters and made them three different ways! I wanted to keep each oyster simple- not mess around with the flavor too much, which I strongly believe in when it comes to every kind of food. Less is more.
One made au gratin with pickled shallots and horseradish to give it a wonderful acidity and a peppery flavor.
Another au gratin with a delicious home made ramson pesto to give it a garlicy aroma.
And the last one au naturel with a touch of truffle oil and red wine vinegar.
I’m amazed and seafood is amazing.
