One of our top recommendations of the year is… steamed oysters! The “Tamaseiro” oysters from the Harimanada region just need to be defrosted and they’re delicious!
There is a saying in Japan, “the forest raises the oysters.” The untouched nature of Harimanada and the minerals from the ground brought by the streams help with the oyster’s growth.
This Harimanada location has an abundance of good phytoplanktons and nutrients, making the farm-raised oysters plump and juicy.
By limiting the number of farm-raised, the oysters are not stressed and can have all the food they need to grow comfortably.
They are ready to eat after one year! That’s right! It only takes one year for the oysters to grow to their plump, perfect-for-eating size. They are a must-eat item!
How to prepare a frozen product?
All Frozen products must be kept frozen at 0° F ( -18°C) or Below. When storing fresh seafood, keep it in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Make sure your home refrigerator is operating at 40°F or lower. For Fresh Seafood: to preserve the best quality keep Fish under ice while in the refrigerator. (Note: Fish will lose quality and deteriorate rapidly with higher storage temperature)
It is best to thaw frozen seafood in the refrigerator overnight. Other thawing methods include: immersing frozen seafood in cold water for a short time in a sealed plastic bag or microwaving on a defrost setting until the fish is pliable but still icy.
