Her finder du vadehavsøstersen
Usually you can find oysters all over the Wadden Sea Area. There are lots of them and they hardly can be avoided. You don´t need any permission to collect them, but a pair of good rubber boots and outdoorwear for the maybe cold wind.
At the South of Rømø, just before the harbour, you will find oysters in the Wadden Sea, only a few meters away from the coast. The other possibility is the North part of Rømø, on the east side.
If you prefer to buy your oysters, you can get them in the fishshops in Havneby.
How to open an oyster
- Fold a dishcloth onto a firm surface
- Lay the oyster flat side up, fold some of the towel over the oyster so you don't cut yourself.
- Now use your left hand to hold the oyster while using your right hand to insert a knife between the two shells.
- Now turn back and forth until the oyster opens
- Use the knife to cut around the edge of the muscle to release it from the shell.
- Pour off the water and remove loose shells.
- Bon apetit!
Eat them raw
The oyster can be eaten in many ways, but if you want the most intimate taste, then you have to taste the oyster completely raw.
Når du har åbnet østersen og fjernet alle skaller der er blevet gjort løse af åbningsprocessen så hælder du vandet fra og tilsætter evt. lidt citronsaft, tabasco eller friskkværnet peber.
The oyster is fished out of the shell and marinated in a layer of oil and vinegar, and possibly added raw onion. The oyster can be marinated for several hours, but can also be fished out of the layer and served after a few minutes. The oyster is served in the original shell, with a bit of the marinade.
Enjoy a cold beer or a little wine to the dish.
The loosened oyster remains in its shell where all the water is drained. The oyster is added to cheese or grater. If you wish, you can add some bacon or ham.
The oyster is then grilled on a grill or in an oven for 4-6 minutes until the surface is slightly golden.
