Oysters are good eats

I spent a little time in Washington and got hooked on the big pacific oysters available there - especially those from Willipa Bay. A local grocery had Willapoint (Willipa Bay) extra small and Pride Of Virginia selects (the bigger size). Half of the Willapoint's were larger than the selects and when I tried some raw, the Va ones hardly had any taste while the Willapoints were excellent. Dusted them all with flour, then egg wash, then Panko and seasoned with Old Bay, S & P. Pan fried in butter/oil. Great meal, but if you live inland like me and have to buy them in a container - the rest of the story is - try Willapoint.

Had raw oysters in New Orleans a few years back and they were awesome, had same in Buffalo last year and they sucked, had some in Fla a month ago and they were fantastic !

John there was a special on PBS a year or so ago about a Chesapeake Bay waterman that did it that way on a boat he restored. Still did it all by hand.....
