It's Oyster Week!




Hello Holiday Seafood Medley Members,

Are we having fun yet? We are loving being able to provide you all with this great variety of the freshest seafood NH has to offer for the Holiday through NH's Only Community Supported Fishery!

This week, we will feature oysters grown right here in New Hampshire, in Great Bay! Your oysters will be harvested the night before your pick up, so it doesn't get any fresher than that!

Our oysters this week come from my former co-worker and friend, Brian Gennaco, owner of Virgin Oyster Company in Dover. We also received oysters from Wagon Hill Oysters, owned by former colleagues and  long time UNH professors, Researchers and oyster farmer experts, Dr. Ray Grizzle and Dr. David Berlinsky (also a fish aquaculturist).

Most people know about eating oysters raw on the halfshell, but they can also be cooked, smoked, fried, used in soups and chowders and mixed in with a variety of other seafood in recipes! Here are some great for your oysters:https://www.pinterest.com/explore/oyster-recipes/.

For Christmas week, we have some adjustments to some of our pick ups:

Manchester: Moved to Wednesday, same times

Exeter: Moved to Wednesday, same times

Peterborough: Moved to Wednesday, same times

All other Friday Pick Ups, Dover, Durham and Portsmouth:

Moved to Thursday, same times

Our premier fish for next week, weather dependent of course, will be Grey Sole! So you can plan your Christmas week fish dinner now! 

Happy Holidays and thanks for making it Seafood for the Season!

With Wishes of Peace and Joy,
