1st time ordering. Received product still frozen but ice was completely gone. Taste was great if you could get over all the broken shell.
This is my third order of the top off oysters and I have to say they are delicious. I serve them raw on the half and also roasted with butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese. I also ordered the sampler pack of smoked oysters and muscles. Haven’t tried them yet but I’m sure they will be just as impressive. You have a life long customer here in PA!
Yummy, they were my birthday dinner tonight and so good! The customer service was fantastic, they were packaged so well and came on the date expected in perfect condition Thanks so much!
I am 84 years old and have been enjoying oysters for many years. Lately, my hands don't have the strength to shuck an oyster. I did without for quite a while, and then I found this product. Thank you Taylor shellfish. I have received several deliveries over the last six months or so, but the last shipment was the best I have ever tasted. Very fresh and very meaty. Great taste. Keep up the great work.
Although there are plenty of restaurants serving locally grown oysters in Newport, RI where I live, and although fish markets do sell them as well, no one that I found could sell me frozen oysters which I could keep in my freezer ready to go. While glued to my PC and the Internet recently I discovered TAYLOR SHELLFISH FARMS. What attracted me to their products especially was the availability of TOP OFF oysters, flash frozen, and ready to go. My order of 30 oysters and a container of shucked oyster meat was shipped overnight by Fed Ex and arrived colder-than-cold frozen in dry ice. Last night I baked 8 of them topped with small-sized breadcrumbs combined with parmesan cheese, parsley, chopped (slightly sautéed) shallots, ground pepper and a small dollop of butter on top. I purposely went light on the butter to keep them a bit healthier than some recipes I have seen online(some calling for a whole stick of butter for about the same number of oysters), and they were wonderfully flavorful just the same. And, given the importance of zinc to our immune system health especially during flu season and the vicious pandemic, and that a Google search told me that 6 oysters can provide 36mg or 327% of the recommended DV—the highest source of zinc in food--, eating them, for me, is a no brainer! As for my shucked oysters, I plan on having them over pasta with garlic and olive oil this week.
Living in the High Country of Colorado we don't have the luxury of fresh seafood very often. Recently, for a close friend's birthday party, we decided to do a seafood dinner. I ordered 60 frozen top off oysters and I have to say, I could not be happier! They were delivered on time exactly as promised. (A good thing because we had no back up plan!) But the best thing was how much they exceeded my expectations. I was not expecting them to be bad by any stretch, but I was amazed at the quality of the oysters. The were excellent in everyway, plump and juicy, with great texture and flavor. I have to say they were as good as any oysters I have ever had anywhere on the coast and better than many. Not only were the oysters excellent, but the people at Taylor Shellfish were a delight to deal with. I had a very minor problem with my order (a wrong canned item was shipped) and they took care of it immediately and with some of the most pleasant customer service I have ever experienced.
Just got these Saturday. Havent had time to try them yet. I am commenting because my order was late and I was afraid my oysters would have thawed but they didn't ! I'm a happy camper.
great idea I love it.arrived perfect
I am in Alabama and this is the second time in a couple of weeks that I have ordered there frozen oysters. They arrive overnight completely frozen. Pop them on the grill and you have almost instant deliciousness! Great customer service and a wonderful product. Highly recommended!
