Who could have ever guessed that those are oysters on the photo?

So, in order to extract the juicy pulp, you will need the following tools:


When we asked the seller not to clean them completely (as seen in the photo, in a metal plate there is already one fully cleaned oyster), and leave it inside in one of the shells, the seller decided to clean the shell with a brush:


After the cleaning process a younger girl started hitting it on the wider part of the shell with a hammer and then prying it slightly open with a knife:

The whole process looks like this:



She placed the open shells by two pieces, with the pulp inside, and tied them with rubber bands. The whole package was put in the bag, generously filled with ice, and we rushed home – to taste it.


At home you might wanna properly rinse every shell once again with running water, arm yourself with a sharp knife to cut the "legs" from where the flesh is attached to the shell, get some lime juice and hot sauce ... and get ready to enjoy your meal!

These oysters are usually sold in Nathon, right next to the ring road, where a songtheo turns to the ferry pier that goes to Donsak, if going from the north.

Exactly the same oysters, but completely cleaned up are sold in Tesco in the fish department.
Easy to find – just look for round plastic jars.
In my opinion, these oysters are not that tasty, but ... if there are no other options you can still buy them in the supermarket.
Price is mostly around 50 baht. There will be around 10-12 rather small pieces.

You can eat them raw, as we did (but then pick up the freshest) and can, for example, be baked in cheese.
