Pacific Oysters at Quayside Brasserie

Pacific Oysters, originally uploaded by zuctronic.

My first "real" dinner in Sydney on Friday night at the Quayside Brasserie... I ordered a half dozen oysters. These are pacific oysters served on a bed of rock salt. Three are "natural" and three are served with a mignonette. For my main course ordered another appetizer: Slow poached & roasted chicken thigh stuffed with mixed herbs & pine nuts, celeriac puree, lentil cassoulet... it was fantastic!

Oysters are common in Japan, but now introduced into a number of other countries including Australia. Most of these introductions have been for the purposes of aquaculture.
