Sometimes, appetizers are the dish you look forward to the most. There are always trendy appetizers going around, but some are classics that have been around for decades. One extremely popular app that anyone will be familiar with are oysters. Some might view them as a treat for when you’re celebrating a special occasion, but at Grico’s South, we think everyone deserves a treat any day of the week. You can order oysters as an appetizer every day, including on shuck ‘em Tuesdays, when you can get 8 for $10.
Not only are they a great choice for an appetizer, but you can order them a few different ways. Here are three different ways they are served at Grico’s South.
Iced oysters are probably what most people think of when they picture them. A tray of oysters sitting on ice is a classic image, and you can’t go wrong ordering yours this way. They are served raw in a half shell, and serving them this way keeps the texture soft and chewy. This classic dish is simple, and there’s a reason people have been eating them this way for generations.
When you have high-quality oysters that have been prepared just right, they’re everything you could want. You can get yours with a lemon mignonette on a regular day or with horseradish, cocktail sauce, and a lemon wedge on shuck ‘em Tuesdays.
If raw oysters aren’t your go-to, we also serve broiled oysters Rockefeller. Oysters Rockefeller are known for their rich taste, so it only makes sense that they would be named after the richest man in America when they were created.
We serve this dish with bacon, spinach, and Pernod cream. Oysters are broiled very gently to help them retain their chewiness and keep from getting too rubbery. If you’re looking for something with a lot of flavor, oysters Rockefeller is just what you need.
What foods aren’t amazing when fried? Oysters certainly are. There’s nothing better than nice, crispy food, and our fried oysters take a classic and turn it into modern finger food. We lightly batter them in cornmeal to fry them, giving them a perfectly crispy outer coating, but they still have the same soft, briny interior that you’d expect. With the spicy remoulade we serve alongside them, they are the perfect appetizer.
