Molly and I made a trip up to the great state of Maine over the weekend for some QT with family and spectacular times were had all around. Before departing for the long drive back to New York on Monday, we visited a great little fish market in Portland, and grabbed up some Shellfish; Oysters, Mussels, and Lobsters. Said Oysters were Winterpoints from West Bath, ME and came highly recommended from the kindly gentleman helping us.
Shucking them, a first for both Molly and I, was quite an adventure (thanks again Jeff) but deeply satisfying. Molly whipped up an excellent minionette to accompany these incredibly delicious creatures; briny, salty, fresh, and sweet. If only we could eat them at every meal. - dmp
