Once, when I was at a trade show in NOLA. One of my co-workers and I hit the Acme Oyster House. I think we did 10 to 12 dozen each. More than likely it was a result of a number of Hurricanes that we each had at Pat O'Brian's prior to hitting Acme.

Anthony Bourdain, who will eat just about anything, won't eat mussels in a restaurant unless he knows the owner. He doubts that a typical restaurant cook will take the time to sort through and pick out the opened ones. We eat mussels fairly regularly, and generally get them from a high quality seafood store. There are almost always a few that get tossed prior to cooking. They might not have been dead long enough to make us sick, but I won't take the chance. If you've ever had food poisoning you would give almost any amount of money to make it go away.

I used to eat them by the dozen when I lived on the gulf coast. I never got sick. I only eat them occasionally now that I live 90 miles inland. Only one place has unwashed oysters and opens them there. They're only good if they haven't been washed. But the place is 50 miles round trip so I only eat there if I have a huge desire for raw oysters or am in town for something else.

Acme was where we had oysters. Luck of the draw, I guess. And we didn't overdo it on Hurricanes at Pat O's prior,

We really didn't get sick, just over indulged. You know that feeling like you want to "be sick", but are not. K-Paul's was packed with a line out the door and a 2 hour wait time. Guess we should of gone to Mulate's. They have really good Boudin, crab au gratin and live Cajun music! Welcome to the Fais Do-Do.

So far, we are the third and fourth people here taking thyroid meds who have never heard of needing to avoid seafood. Strange...

We both love oysters on the half shell.

I have never gotten sick from raw or cooked oysters. I love them.
But. I would never eat so many as to feel over full on them. Why ruin a good thing?
I want to continue to love them, so I only eat moderate portions.

My favorite way to have oysters is drizzled with a little jalapeno butter and grilled on the half shell. Not for long, maybe 4 or 5 minutes on the grill. LOVE them this way!

I've never gotten sick from eating oysters.

Back in the day my wife used to tell me to eat oysters, as many as I can, every day...
