A mouthful of the ocean, years ago the oyster was considered a humble snack as they grew in abundance around the harbours. Now oysters have become associated with champagne, extravagance, wealth and romance. Often oysters are served raw on the half shell with a little mignonette sauce, but we have also collected some great healthy oyster recipes, which lightened-up versions of the classic oyster dishes and good source of zinc, which supports the immune system. Try some of them at a dinner party, or just as part of a romantic dinner for your loved one.
