In Korea, oyster is crowned as " Milk from the sea". Today, I cook it with the radish...
在韩国,蚝被冠为 "来自大海的牛奶“。

Oysters are an excellent source of zinc, iron, calcium, selenium as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin B12. Oysters are low in food energy

Oysters can be eaten on the half shell, raw, smoked, boiled, baked, fried, roasted, stewed, canned, pickled, steamed, broiled .
