Hama Hama Oysters

December 13, 2010 – 8:52 pm

Another month, another weight loss goal, and another treat of oysters 🙂 I got some Hama Hama Oysters this time, grown near the Hood Canal. I’m slowly but surely getting better at shucking. Still a couple shell fragments inside, but they were larger flat bits that were easy to pick off before I enjoyed the oysters. I didn’t like these quite as much as either the Quilcene or Penn Cove flavor-wise, but they were still quite enjoyable. I think the “cucumber” was a bit too strong. I like it as a finish, but I prefer the brine to be more prominent, and a bit of a sweet finish is nice too. Gotta love the side effect of this goal of mine of developing a palate for oysters 😛
