Several years ago my husband and I travelled the Inside Passage of British Columbia on the B.C.Ferries system. At Port Hardy we had a “splurge” dinner at a lovely restaurant. Not being really hungry that night, I thought I’d order 2 small appetizers instead of an entrée.
Pacific Oysters was my choice. They arrived – a total of 6 pieces. Each resembled a grey looking boiled egg – just firm enough to hold its shape but not more than that. And these weren’t teensey-weensey sizes either - I was sure they were too big to just gulp down with a chaser! So I didn’t.
