Oyster is packed with nutrition. It is an exceptional source of zinc, iron, and vitamin B-12, all nutrients that fight depression. In fact, it is so high that I consider oyster to be a “depression buster food” as I describe in the book Rebuild from Depression.
But what to do with oysters? Canned oysters I like to use in soups much like clam chowder or in dips like this clam dip. If you buy oysters fresh on the shell, check out Diane’s very simple recipe for steamed oysters or her tantalizing fried oyster recipe.
