Labor day is one our favorite holidays, ’cause it marks the (okay, unofficial) start of oyster season!
Here at A. Marshall Family Foods, we love oysters all year ‘round, but it’s no secret that they’re most popular during the fall. If it’s been awhile since you’ve indulged, here’s a little pearl of wisdom: at Puckett’s Boat House, we source our oysters fresh daily from the Gulf Coast (which happens to also be one of our favorite places!) Our guests have eaten over half a million oysters at the Boat House, and one of ’em even contained 50 pearls! There is no better place in Franklin to get a taste of this seafood treat.
When we’re feeling traditional, we like to serve ‘em up raw on the half shell with a lemon and cocktail sauce. When we’re feeling spunky, we recommend trying ’em grilled and topped with asiago, bacon, and jalapeño; creamy spinach dip; or cajun herb and garlic butter. Can’t decide? Heck, order ’em all!
Oysters go great with bubbles, try them with a sparkling white wine to really complete the experience. We’ll see you soon, and if you find a pearl, don’t forget to tag us @puckettsboath to let us know!
