I first ate char-grilled oysters many years ago at Drago's restaurant in Metairie, LA. The first time I tried a dozen of them I could not get enough. I went back to the restaurant three times before leaving New Orleans. When I go back I have at least 2 dozen of these wonderful cheese, butter and garlic laden jewels while in town.
Eat oysters often, they are one of the greatest prizes we reap from the sea.
