Origin: Miramichi Bay, New Brunswick, Canada
Species: Crassostrea virginica
In the face of Canada’s cold, dark winters, it’s no surprise that these “beautiful suns” are so beloved. The cold waters of Miramichi Bay mean these oysters are slow-growing—it takes up to four years to grow to cocktail size—but worth the wait.
These petite rays of sunshine come with clean, uniform shells and a hit of salt and seaweed. Keep chewing and you’ll even get a hint of sweet honey.
