Live Oysters Tarbouriech Pinky

High range product, the Special oyster “Tarbouriech”® is farmed and gets a dewatering process, which can last several days during the growing cycle.
This system which allows to reproduce tide, uses solar energy to control the mechanical process of dewatering.
It improves the oyster quality, esthetic aspect (Slightly pink shell, few bio-soiling) and also firmness of meat.

The Tarbouriech operation lies in the Bassin de Thau, a tideless lagoon near Bouzigues. By artificially recreating tides, the oysters grown on  frames and lifted repeatedly from the water have to “struggle” to survive. “This forces them to produce higher levels of glycogen, a kind of sugar, making them grow a more dense muscle structure, which gives a better taste and texture.”

How to serve and an oyster?

Start by sorting through your oysters, they all should be tightly closed. Those that are open and will not close when tapped on a hard surface need to be discarded. Open them following the following video tutorials. Remove the first water juice just after the opening which is only composed of sea water. The oyster will recreate a second one much more flavourful.  Serve the oysters immediately. Putting them on ice bed would hide some flavours.
