I DID IT!! I "slurped" that baby right down ~LIKE A BOSS!! Okay, like a big reluctant baby... but I came, I tried, and I liked it!!
Brandon and I are scheming together a triathlon at Daupin Island. So I met him over there to recon the race site and make some connections. A few wings, a couple beers...let's go get some oysters. Oh what the hey!...
My favorite part about our oyster adventure was Brandon prepping THE sauce. I call it THE sauce now because it's HIS special mixture and I've proclaimed it THE sauce...
A little bit of this, a little bit of that ("the Shuck'n N' Jive'n is the secret")... stir, mix, taste, add, mix, taste, and then the marinating. He delicately and professional plucked the oysters out of the shell and bedded them in THE sauce. He's totally mastered the raw oyster experience...
He evens pre-opens all the crackers to wash down the slime.
I used WINE! Ha!!
Now, don't be scared, they're actually delicious!! Open wide and SWALLOW!!
Okay, there IS some chewing to it. But it's not gross! There's no explosion of guts or grits of sand. Maybe those are BAD oysters that you hear about. But at Wintzell's, they were divine! They were smooth and tasty. Like seafood *shrug*. And with Brandon, I don't know what was better, the company or the flavors!
But just an FYI Brandon, I'm already concocting my own version of sauce as I write this and it may just become THE THE sauce!!
