The French do many things well in life, and fine dining is definitely one of them. Les Huîtres Vertes are a French delicacy requested by kings and queens alike. So when Tim Jones discovered his own ‘Green Oysters’ happily growing at his Merimbula lease, we got very excited!
Emerald Oysters are an incredibly rare natural occurance, particularly in Australian waters. It happens when the oysters snack on a specific type of micro-algae in the waters called Blue Navicula. They’re perfectly safe for human consumption and demand has skyrocketed so much across France in recent years that labratories have even begun growing the micro-algae and selling it to oyster farmers wanting to recreate the rare natural occurance.
Recent scienfitic studies have shown evidence that the blue pigment, known as marennine, has been found to have powerful antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral properties. What better reason do you need to try these special oysters this week at some of our favourite restaurants?! Click through below to make your booking now! Bon Appetit, oyster lovers, we can’t wait to hear what you think of them!
