Those little smoked oysters in a can..... () () () Sun, 02/26/06 1:41 PM (permalink)
The thread about sardines got me thinking about the little smoked oysters that come in a can. I always keep some on hand. My fav way to eat em is on a saltine cracker with some sour cream and a slice of pickled jalapeno. Anyone have some other good ways to eat em?

And about the brands? They all taste about the same to me but I haven't tried all of the different brands.

    Yep: They are good. A toothpick & some hotsauce is all that I need, though. I save the saltines for the raws...

          We eat them on triscuits(sp) with a piece of Jarlsberg swiss and a touch of Louisiana Hot Sauce

                Had a couple of cans in the pantry one year around Thanksgiving. I made smoked oyster stuffing. I loved it. The family hated it. Never did it again. In fact every year, someone warns me, "If you're going to make stuffing again, don't make it with those darned smoked oysters!" Phillistines, what are ya gonna do?

                  Heck, I'll even eat the Geisha brand. Little tiny cocktail fork and eat 'em right out of the can. Smoky, yummy.

                        • Drain, dab with plain old yellow mustard, put on a saltine. I'm sure other mustards could be used, but this is how I was introduced to them.
                        • Drain, chop, and use in a cheese ball

                          We sometimes mash them up in a smoked oyster spread, but we also like to mix mayonnaise and horseradish, put a spoonful of that on a cracker, and place a smoked oyster on top. Extremely simple, but people go for it.

                            How did I miss this thread. I love smoked oysters in a can!

                            In additon to the various appetizers or snack recipes similar to those listed above, I also use them to make oyster and seafood soups. They're my little secret ingredient I've used in dips too.

                              Scorereader, Right on, about adding them to (already prepared) soups.
                              When I am heating up a can of Clam Chowder, tossing in a can of the Smoked Oysters (oil and all) make it that much better. Quick and Good works for me.

                                I keep them for the occasional pot of jambalaya. They're great that way.

                                  Try 'em on a garlic round toasted cracker with a sharp cheddar spread. It's my Indy 500 snack of choice!!

                                    Have to admit, I eat them once or twice a year, too--usually as part of a summer lunch. Sometimes sardines or kippers are good as well.

                                      A must-have on Thanksgiving and Christmas when the family gathers here. My grandchildren (inexplicably) insist I have them on hand, or it's not a holiday. I also like them with a can of kipper snacks and toast for lunch. Wash it all down with a Moxie. Pure bliss!

                                        I'd imagine they'd be good prepared and served like traditional escargot (so that would be "à la bourguignonne")

                                          I love them right out of the can with some sesame melba toast and a chunk of extra sharp cheddar cheese !

                                            Add well drained smoked oysters to canned clam chowder,plus try them as an omelet filler with olives and scallions

                                              I have never had smoked oysters. I usually like oysters about anyway and I have had them every way except smoked.

                                              I cannot imagine the taste of those tasty rascals. I certainly will try them before the summer os over.

                                                    I mentioned this thread in anouther thread about canned oysters so I thought it might be OK to revive this.

                                                    I'm still toping a spoon of chili with one of these little jewels, mmmm!

                                                          Those things are hard to get enough of. I open a can, and immediately I've got my sons and my cats hovering, waiting for me to give them all away. I buy the cheap cans from Smart and Final, lots of them, out of pure self-defense, and eat them however I can, fast enough so I get a few.

                                                            My area is abundant with the availability of fresh Apalachicola Bay oysters year round, so I admit I have never tried canned oysters. However, canned/tinned smoked oysters and kippered herring are on my list of frequently eaten foods. I even like the canned mackerel from (Argentina)? That stuff is so cheap it is ridiculous. Needless to say, my cats REALLY adore the canned mackerel stuff, also. Years ago, I EVEN tried Surströmming. I was very lit that night... My advice to myself was to NEVER do THAT again...
