A Great Introduction to Seafood

What better way to dip your toes into the delicious world of seafood than with cheese, bacon and garlic? You don’t need to learn how to shuck and you certainly don’t have to worry about unfamiliar flavors.

Oysters a great vehicle for all of those yummy toppings you love. Indulge in the buttery goodness of a fresh oyster topped with pecorino, bacon, spinach and sundried tomatoes. All of these delicious ingredients are then placed under the broiler for a few minutes until golden and bubbly.

After you devour your broiled oysters, the obvious next step is an entree. For a delicious pairing, we recommend one of these dishes:

Sweet Tea Brined Wood Grilled Pork Chop with roasted sweet potato, chargrilled peach bbq,  broccolini

Local Catch Hoppin’ John with black eye peas, basil pesto rice tomato compote

Seared Filet Mignon with mushroom risotto, grilled asparagus, brandy veal jus

Plays Well with a Glass of Wine or a Strong Cocktail

Rich broiled oysters need a full-bodied beverage to bring out the indulgent flavors. Balance your delicious appetizer with a bold Cabernet or red blend. If liquor is more your speed, a classic old fashioned couldn’t be a better choice.

If you opt for raw oysters on the half shell instead, sparkling wine is the answer. Prosecco and Champagne are classic wine pairings for dishes like raw oysters and fried chicken. Yes, we did say fried chicken.
