Little gems of the sea, a.k.a. oysters are the perfect way to treat yourself this spring! If you’re a seafood lover and have never given them a try, it’s definitely worth splurging for the opportunity. The best way to describe their flavor is simply pure ocean in a shell. Try our smoked oysters recipe and serve them at the next get together or enjoy them yourself (because when it comes to oysters who really likes to share?).
