Oysters with Bean Sauce (Taucheo)

Stir-fried Oysters with Bean Paste (Taucheo)

Plump, juicy, succulent, perfectly cooked, soft, smooth, and absolutely DELICIOUS.

Prepared with the simplest of ingredients–fermented bean paste (taucheo), ginger, scallion, red chilies–this dish is a gem…

Yes, I do know how to make this dish, but where do I find fresh baby oysters that won’t cost me US$2 per oyster?! And no, those giant alien-like-shell-on oysters at Asian supermarkets in the United States won’t work. If you know where to find affordable (fresh) baby oysters, please let me know!

    We have the same problem here. Seafood is pricey too in Canada :)

    I’ve never had oysters before but these look so plumb and juicy and with those simple ingredients, I bet the flavour of the oysters really come through.
