The National Oyster Day is celebrated every year on 5th August. If you enjoy seafood, then this is the perfect holiday for you. There are about 100 oyster species in the world. These interesting shellfishes tend to take on the characteristics of the water that they live in. This is the reason why they are named after the water body that they are found.

Oysters can be eaten in so many ways. However, some people love and enjoy their oysters raw. It makes a great side dish as it adds a wonderful flavor to thanksgiving dressing. You can also use oysters to make soups, stews, and chowders. If you love food trends then you’ve noticed that there are recipes that bake, grill and even broil oysters. You can do this with or without the shells.
