Our friends over at The Weekly Herald are thinking about delicious oysters this week and would like to know what you think.

Love them or hate them, many people feel passionately about oysters. Those who love them delight in the briny taste of the sea.

One of the prime oyster growing regions is right here in Washington. Our brackish bays are some of the best oyster nurseries in the world with the shallow, warm waters providing the ideal conditions that suit oysters just fine. Read more about our local oysters here.

Now, tell us, please. Where do you think you can find the best oysters? What varieties do you prefer? How do you like to prepare them? Email The Weekly Herald at dining@weeklyherald.com or leave a comment here.
