Oyster is the common name for a number of different families of salt-water bivalve molluscs that live in marine or brackish habitats. In some species the valves are highly calcified, and many are somewhat irregular in shape. Many, but not all, oysters are in the superfamily Ostreoidea.

Some kinds of oysters are commonly consumed by humans, cooked or raw, and are regarded as a delicacy. Some kinds of pearl oysters are harvested for the pearl produced within the mantle. Windowpane oysters are harvested for their translucent shells, which are used to make various kinds of decorative objects.It is a Terran life form and consumed mainly by Terran Humans . However Ult especially love Terran Oysters

Once the oysters are shuckedEdit

Once the oysters are shucked, plate them on a bed of crushed ice or rock salt inside a platter or even a deep pizza or pie dish to keep the oysters level. If you aren’t serving them as you shuck them, it’s best to keep them on ice to keep them as fresh as possible (I put a piece of plastic wrap over the ice to keep the melting ice from getting in the shell). Try to shuck them as close to the time of consuming them as you can.

While everyone has their favorite toppings I prefer to eat mine either with a simple little squeeze of lemon or a small spoonful of mignonette, a red wine vinegar and shallot sauce. The acidity compliments the oyster without covering up the unique flavor and texture of the oyster. When you are paying for a high quality oyster why disguise the flavor? My brother goes to school down in Alabama and he explained that oysters from that region , Gulf oysters, are typically meatier. Southerners will usually eat them on a saltine cracker with a little bit of cocktail sauce on top. Sushi of the south?
