How: Tray-raised and beach finished
Buckley Bay Oyster (Crassostrea gigas) is a Pacific Oyster from Baynes Sound, southern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. These 3” to 3.5” size oysters are tray-raised and beach finished resulting in a strong shell that makes it easy for shucking!
For Your Menu
With its fantastic plump meat to shell ratio, Buckley Bay Oysters has a sweet flavor with a light brine finish and earthy organic undertones. Feature these oysters raw or cooked – your customers will love them! Like all West Coast oysters you can count on full, robust flavor, so work in your favorite accompaniment, or try them hot off the grill.
For Your Waitstaff
We recommend pairing oysters with a crisp dry white wine or a refreshing cold beer!
