Why use Greendale?
We are delighted to be stocking the world renowned Carlingford Oyster. These delicious oysters have been hand picked from the heart of Carlingford Lough where oysters have thrived for many centuries. The unique sweet taste and high meat content of the Carlingford Oyster is one of nature's real treasures.
Carlingford Oyster Company
What makes an oyster one of the most passionately and sought after products in the world. Well we have to thank the Romans. You may ask what did the Romans ever do for us? If only one thing they have given us a passion to culture oysters as they were the real pioneers in this area. Carlingford Oyster Company carry on this tradition but as each oyster can filter over 55 litres of water a day it is entirely up to nature to determine the flavour in each oyster. It takes them over three years to grow a Carlingford Oyster to market size so that’s a lot of filtering. In Carlingford Lough they have a huge exchange of water with each tide which provides the nutrients on which the oysters feed. In conjunction with this freshwater flowing in from the mountain sides north and south of the Lough give our Carlingford Oysters a very rich and distinctive flavour. Next time you try one of our Carlingford Oysters look out for the sweet slightly nutty flavour followed by a slight tannic and lingering aftertaste. Then thank the Romans!
Oysters with Chilli and Ginger Recipe
A quick, easy sauce to serve with your oysters – you can spoon a little into each shell before eating. Makes enough to serve with Half-Dozen Pack of Oysters.
Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe
Treat yourselves to a plate of these more-ish little morsels while they’re still in season. It’s worth seeking out Panko breadcrumbs if you can for this recipe – unlike other breadcrumbs, their unique texture absorbs less oil, with super-light and crunchy results. Serves 2-3, depending on appetite.
