These are not your typical canned oysters. Smoking oysters completely changes the taste as well as the texture. Instead of being wet and soft, smoking transforms them to be firm, yet still juicy.
Smoked oysters are great on their own as a snack or just on crackers with a touch of hot sauce. They also make a delicious addition to salads, pasta, dressing, vegetable dishes, and more.
For a great appetizer make a dip – simply blend together smoked oysters, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Try adding tabasco sauce or caramelized onions for variations. Serve with bread or crackers. Enjoy!
