Oyster marinated with red pepper powder/凉拌鲜蚝 /굴무침

In Korea, autumn is the harvest season for oysters. Oyster is one of the Korean favourite seafood. We can either fry the oyster pancake, cook the oyster seaweed soup or just marinate it with red pepper powder etc...In  autumn, this is one of the ingredients for making kimchi.

( This recipe is written in Chinese & English )

The word oyster is used as a common name for a number of different families of saltwater clams, bivalve molluscs that live in marine or brackish habitats. In some species the valves are highly calcified, and many are somewhat irregular in shape. Many, but not all, oysters are in the superfamily Ostreoidea.
Some kinds of oysters are commonly consumed, cooked or raw, by humans as a delicacy. Some kinds of pearl oysters are harvested for the pearl produced within the mantle. Windowpane oysters are harvested for their translucent shells, which are used to make various kinds of decorative objects.

Oysters are an excellent source of zinc, iron, calcium, and selenium, as well as vitamin A and vitamin B12. Oysters are low in food energy; one dozen raw oysters contains 110 kilocalories (460 kJ). Oysters are considered most nutritious when eaten raw
