Oyster Barbecue Hut in Itoshima

 

Itoshima oyster growing up in the rich nature of mountain and sea

Itoshima oyster features mellow and sweet taste.

 

There are many Oyster Barbecue Huts at five fishing harbours.

The huts only open during the season, from end of October to March or April.

The huts are simple in construction; just big vinyl tents filled with a few dozen tables,

each with their own grill. You can get oysters, sazae (sea snails), prawns, fish

and other seafood, fresh as fresh can be, by the crate. The hut provides the grill, tongs,

cotton gloves, and other tools for you try your hand at grilling your own seafood.

 

Cooking them right can be tricky, but learning is part of the fun. For oysters, try putting

the flat side down first, flip after awhile, and wait for them to open from the heat.

Take them off the grill—gloves on of course—and open them the rest of the way with

the provided knife. Add a touch of shoyu (soy sauce), ponzu (a tangy citrus-based sauce),

lemon juice, or mayonnaise if you like and they’re ready to eat. If you’re unsure how

to cook things, just look around at what the other tables are doing or wave over the

helpful kakigoya staff.
