French Kiss Oysters
French Kiss Oysters are a Canadian oyster from Miramichi Bay on the Acadian Peninsula near Negauc, New Brunswick. They are a larger version of the famous Beau Soleils oyster, which is simply allowed to grow for an additional couple of years to reach a size of about 3 1/2 inches. They are a suspension tray cultivated oyster, placed in mesh bags suspended from floating buoys. The natural movement of the waves, coupled with the ebb and flow of the tides, results in a natural, gentle chipping away of the shells as they rub and tumble against each other, giving French Kiss oysters deep cups and a perfect paisley shape. Size: Up to 3.5”.
