I'm allergic to shellfish??!!?

I had the loveliest oysters last week from Shuck Oyster Bar, a fairly new restaurant at the OC Mix last week. They were probably the freshest cleanest tasting oysters I've had in a long while, from a small unassuming little shop.  I'm still dreaming of these beauties and counting the days until I can talk someone into buying me a dozen of these gems, along with a cold glass of crisp white wine.  Yes, you can buy my friendship with twelve little oysters...  I'm easy like that.


Kusshi, Hurricanes, and Rappahannock

Duo of sauces plus horseradish
 The vinaigrette was fantastic!  A great marriage of red wine vinegar, rice wine vinegar, cucumber, onion, sugar, all marinated together for a week to make the loveliest accompaniment to these delightfully fresh oysters shucked right in front of me at the counter.

Oh yeah, I'm allergic to shellfish.  These were that good.
