Oysters are a lean source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. 6 oysters contain one third of your RDI of the uber healthy fatty acid. On the other hand, 6 oysters only contain about 55 milligrams of cholesterol, about 1/5 of the cholesterol found in an egg. So the effect on blood cholesterol caused by oysters is minimal at most. Plus they are high in the immune supporting mineral zinc, as well as B12, copper, iron and selenium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin.
Months that contain the letter “R” are the months of oyster season (that is September through April).

Oyster purchase and prep tips:

1. Must be fresh (no fishy smell). They should smell like the sea and not at all sulfurous.
2. Oysters should be shut, and if one isn’t, (although it should be) it should shut emphatically when tapped.
3. They should be arranged so that they are lying flat.
4. Do not store in water
5. If you don’t intend to eat them right away, cover with a damp towel and refrigerate for up to one day.
6. Scrub under cold running water
7. Shuck them, add spices and eat!
