i've never had smoked oysters, but it sounds good.

give this a try.

i thought it was a weird invention of my dad when i was a kid, but when i was old enough i saw it offered as appetizers in several irish joints here in nyc, and eventually in belfast and other cities, so i came to realize it's an irish pub favourite that goez great with a myriad of cold beers.

Snacks in Puglia

Buon Giorno,

Cool post ...

Some of my favorite savory snacks when in Puglia, Italia are:

1. capers, olives and Paté or Terrine combining veal & pork
2. sun dried tomato bread and Evoo
3. anchovies & pomodoro ( red ripe tomato ) on canapé
4. Lay´s potato chips with sundried tomatoes and a drizzle of the Evoo that comes from the sundried tomatoes in jar & dipped in Home made Ricotta ...
5. Proscuitto di Parma wrapped around a slice of Juicy Green Melon
6. crudities: celery match sticks, fennel match sticks, cherry tomatoes, and Radicchio Magenta red violet lettuce served with Fresh sweet Gorgonzola at room temperature, providing the dip like creaminess.
7. fresh clams off half shell with lemon and a fresh Matara, Basilicata chili pepper or dried red cayenne flakes
8. fresh oysters off half shell ... nothing but a Prosecco shall do here or a glass of Cava or Champagne for us ...
9. grilled shrimp drizzled with Evoo, Cayenne and garlic with a piquant dip
10. Provoletta: melted herbed spiced provolone in a clay earthenware with shallot or spring onion, red bell diced finely and green bell ... Oven melt and serve with a loaf of Italian style Baguette.
11. BREAD, EVOO AND SEA SALT ... ( SIMPLE PLEASURES ARE THE BEST )
12. The Mediterranean Trilogy: wine, bread and cheese; we are cheese-aholics; except orange rind, orange or münster varieties ... All Mediterranean cheeses, French, Greek, Italian, 98% of the Spanish home farmed goat cheeses with herbal or La Vera Cayenne Smoked Paprika rinds
and a good aged Gruyčre from Switzerland ...
13. A piece of pure Cacoa ...
14. an espresso with a black chocolate truffle filled with Rose ganache
15. Sweet tooth Call: tiramisů with Espresso and Marsala

I do not have much of an affinity for sweets, however, the Vet and his buddies love my Maternal side of the family cakes, and cookies, and he takes them to the Vet Lab Offices for his team ... This is one of the only reasons I bake fairly often, for the Team and Ranchers ... They are truly a cool group of animal lovers ...

There was a snack, using cottage cheese; this does not exist here in the Mediterranean, we use Ricotta as a sub. Potato chips with dip, in general I like potato chips in Spain with Fresh marinated Anchovies with Evoo and Garlic Marinade on mine ... This tapa is called: Boquerones en Maceración and it is served with Lays Potato chips ...

Ciao, and thanks for some interesting
ideas.
Have lovely Tuesday,
Margaux Cintrano.

What?!?

They're wonderful, especially the little ones. Smoked baby clams are also delish. I eat them straight out of the tin with a toothpick. I don't drain the oil.

I've only had the canned ones, would love to try home smoked, but we can't get the fresh ones here.

I have never had home smoked oysters either. 'Course that might be because fresh oysters simply don't last long enough around here to have any left to smoke.
