Oysters and summer go together but only Pacific or rock oysters, the cultivated ones. Native oysters are not so plentiful and should only be available when there’s an R in the month.
These particular oysters were 90p each and came from the Menai Strait via Mermaid Seafoods in Llandudno. This family run business offers an excellent range of locally caught fish and from further away. They also provide good advice on what to choose and how to prepare it.
On their recommendation we had locally caught grey mullet, filleted and fried in olive oil and butter; really tasty. Served with new potatoes, curly kale and broad beans from the veg patch.
