a taste of the ocean

From a visit to my shellfish guy...

Sewansecott oysters, above, raised just inside the barrier island inlets on the eastern shore's seaside.  With strong tides coming off the ocean, they grow quickly. Maybe just year old oysters, not much more.  A plump, tender taste of the ocean.

And farm raised little neck clams, they could have come from either the bayside or the seaside of the eastern shore.  Oysters raw, clams steamed to go with a steamed artichoke and lemon butter.  Excellent.
