Oyster – a delicious mollusc that us humans have been eating for thousands of years. In more recent times we have become better at serving it – from raw with horseradish and hot sauce, to grilling and frying. There are so many delicious recipes you can use with a simple bushel of oysters.

As long as the oysters are fresh, and you are comfortable doing so, taste the raw oyster before you add the seasoning. If your oysters are nice and salty (which is what you want) don't add salt to your frying ingredients. If they are not salty go ahead and add some. This was why I said to use a low salt creole seasoning, you don't want to over season your oysters.
Do not fry too many oysters at the same time as this may cause them to stick together or some be more cooked than others. Cook in batches.
If you don't have a thermometer for your grease you can check with the handle of a wooden spoon, bubbles will fizz around the wood once it is up to temperature.

This is just a term for a restaurant that specializes in preparing oysters for consumption.
A bushel is the measurement given, basically, for a sack of oysters.
An oyster bar restaurant is the same as mentioned above, a restaurant/bar dedicated to the preparation of serving oysters for consumption.
Oyster bar, oyster house, oyster bar restaurant, same same. lol
Your best course of action will be to enter that exact search term into the google search box ‘oysters near me’ and it will give you a list of places where you can find oysters.
This is a special knife made especially for opening the shell of an oyster. The blade is dull but VERY strong so that it doesn’t break when prying open the shell.
There are roughly 100 oysters in a bushel.
Yes, just like for you an me, oysters are a wonderful source of protein. Of course depending on if you cook them and what you cook them with….
As long as you have your location turned on on your mobile phone you can search using google. Just type in ‘oyster bar near me’ and it will quickly give you the results of the oyster bars closest to you.
Shucking oysters is easy, as long as you have the right type of knife and an oyster glove. Just use the blade to slice along the inside of the shell until it begins to open then twist the knife until the oyster shell pops.
Lol, nothing to do with a real oyster. This is a comical name given to bull’s testicles that have been cooked for consumption.
