Re: Exotic Foods from Ethnic Menus?
Properly fried oysters are incredible, my other favorite cooked oyster is very simple. Roasted on a charcoal grill, do not overcook, once they open another minute or minute and a half, don't want to cook all the liqeur off, should be about a couple of teaspoons still left in shell with meat. A few drops of drawn butter and a drop of hot sauce on it. Yeah baby, that is heaven.
We recently ate at Steamers on Chincoteague Island, the fried platter was awesome. Oysters, sea scallops and shrimps. Most of the diners were paying $50 each for all you can eat snow crabs and steamed shrimp, we split a dozen steamed big necks and one fried platter (2 sides) and a few beers for $55.
