Raw oysters.

I was shucking some raw oysters today. I ate 10 before I noticed, they have a consolation prize inside.





I'm rethinking about eating raw oysters.

All for free too :)

[@913049,Azlotto] Wow, all of that.

It has added to my knowledge base :)
Azlotto · M
[@1313,Nimbus] I started laughing when I saw the recipes. I don't feel so nauseated now.

ALL shellfish is suspect right now. In addition to the normal things you might find in raw seafood, like worms, shellfish in particular is heavily polluted with microplastics.

[@387713,4meAndyou] Thanks? I feel better now...jk...I ate an oyster and got the crabs.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm sorry I've never consumed shell fish... So I don't get it... Aren't those crabs?

And what is that noise in the pictures? And that petri dish?

[@1089099,stonesandripples] No, I ended up flushing them.

[@913049,Azlotto] Sending them back home I see.
Azlotto · M
[@1089099,stonesandripples] LMAO! I guess so.

I probably would too, if I'd ever eaten them. Those little crabs, remind of me those cute little ones that pop up out of and run around on the the sand.

LMAO! I know the ones you're talking about. They chase you until you stop running.

Thanks, Piper.

[@913049,Azlotto] Interesting. I'd never even heard of pea crabs before, and it's very unlikely I'll ever meet one....much less eat it. :)
