Grab a Sack of Fat Gulf Oysters

Gulf oysters are extra fat right now after our recent cold snap. José at Airline Seafood at 1841 Richmond showed me the only sack of oysters he had when I stopped in on Tuesday. He said he was expecting a fresh shipment today. The bag of oysters on hand were harvested on January 17 in Matagorda Bay, according to the bag tag. The sell-by date was January 31. The oysters come from Misho's Oyster Company.

Airline Seafood gets $36 for a 100-count bag. That's higher than in past years, but 36 cents an oyster is still a pretty good deal. They also sell shucked oysters from Misho's by the pint or quart. If you are thinking what I'm thinking, we both better call Airline Seafood at 713-526-2351 and order in advance. We are going to need a whole lot of oysters for that New Orleans Saints Victory Party on February 7.
