Fruits de Mer

And by fruits, I mean specifically raw oysters.

After our snorkeling jaunt, we were starving and headed around the corner for lunch at Half Shell Raw Bar to get some deeeeelicious raw oysters.  And by us, I mean TK and me–Sissy & James delightfully refrained (fine by me–that meant more for me TK & me!).

The oysters did not disappoint.  They were very clean with just a little bite to them.  While I’m not the biggest fan of limes in general (unless mixed with tequila and salt), the key limes that were served along side added a nice twist from the lemon wedges that normally accompany raw oysters. I could have easily eaten several dozen by myself (the oysters that is, not the limes!)!

But of course, if I had eaten 2 dozen oysters then I couldn’t have properly enjoyed my crab cakes.  They were light and delicate, filled with lots of crab meat, spices, and just enough bread crumbs to hold them together (as opposed to the majority of crab cakes which tend to be heavy on the bread crumbs and light on the crab!).  It was paired with a caesar salad and made for a very delicious lunch!

While we were very tempted by the key lime pie, there wasn’t any room for dessert–at least to be able to properly enjoy it!  Although I could have easily downed another oyster or two 😉
