So, what is oysters?

Oysters are a type of shellfish that are highly prized for their unique briny flavor and delicate texture. They are considered a luxury food item and are often served raw on the half-shell, although they can also be cooked in a variety of ways. Oysters are an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, including zinc, which is important for immune function and wound healing. They are also low in calories and fat, making them a healthy addition to any diet. However, it's important to note that oysters can sometimes contain harmful bacteria, so it's important to consume them only from reputable sources and to handle them with care.
