Fresh oysters are certainly better than the canned versions. Still, if you don’t have access to fresh oysters, those that come in jars and cans will do.
In this post, I will particularly tackle on the topic of canned oysters and how to cook this type of dish. Do keep in mind that the canned varieties are either boiled or smoked – and are, therefore, already cook. And as such, they can be eaten out of the can (if you want to).
Still, you can cook canned oysters in many different ways. Just think of it as reheating the food – as you really don’t want to overcook oysters. When overdone, oysters can become dry and rubbery. Also, when not handled gently, canned oysters can fall apart (since they’re quite delicate).
Technically, this article is not about cooking canned oysters (since they’re already cooked). What I’m about to show you are the many different ways you can use oysters in recipes (as ingredients).
This is going to be fun.
