Smoked Oysters (牡蠣の燻製)| Kuroda Suisan (黒田水産) | Akkeshi

Akkeshi (厚岸) is one of the famous fishing sites of oysters in Japan! I really recommend its very fresh oysters, but how about smoked oysters as your souvenirs?
Let's go to the JR Akkeshi station!

Its Kiosk has some kinds of oyster souvenirs.

Have you ever heard oyster monaka (かき最中)(oyster-shaped bean jam wafers) ? Sounds very interesting, isn't it?

Anyway, when you come here, please eat smoked oysters. Tastes super x 2 wonderful!!!

They have a normal version, and

a cheese-in version.

I definitely chose the later ones, because it won the award of the Director-General of Fisheries Agency (水産庁長官賞) at the Processed Seafood Competition of Japan(全国水産加工たべもの展)!!!

See?! It is very very yummy!!!

Hi K.K

I'd like to know if we can eat this "smoked oysters" right after we open the package :) I mean, no need to cook it first, right? Also, can i bring this home as souvenirs?

Thanks in advance :)

PS: i really enjoy your blog. Thank you for sharing all your experiences, it's nice to read them all
