Nothing is seriously wrong with these farmed oyster pieces from South Korea. There are no inclusions of sand or shell fragments. Just as clams are an extremely, extremely rich source of iron, oysters are an extremely, extremely rich source of zinc. The only problem might be that these oyster pieces are slightly less delicious than some brands of canned whole oysters. The reason might be that it is quite normal for whole oysters to be slightly better-tasting than oyster pieces. Like most farmed oysters from South Korea, these oyster pieces are lighter in color than the darker-colored farmed oysters from China. Unlike smoked oysters, which are high in cancer-causing nitrosamines and cancer-causing heterocyclic amines, these oyster pieces are quite good for your health. Oysters are extremely low in mercury and other marine pollutants and moderately high in the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.

These work great for scalloped oysters and are cheaper than buying in a store. Use layers of butter, ritz crackers and oysters in bowl and pour whipping cream over them inch from the top of the oysters then bake for 45 minutes at 350, delicious.
