Sol Azul Oysters (Baja)
This product is available during these seasons:
Sol Azul organic oysters (Crassostrea gigas) are produced in the country’s most pristine waters on the Pacific coast: the Biosphere Reserve of El Vizcaíno along the Baja Peninsula. As the largest wildlife reserve in Mexico, the internationally-recognized area is home to thousands of endemic species of plants and animal life found nowhere else in the world. It is also a prime reproduction location for the North Pacific gray whale.
As a result of being “four seasons” oysters – something that is unique to Mexico – Sol Azuls provide a uniform composition, texture and taste. Their appealing outer shell is very clean and regular in shape, which lends to easy opening, while their pearlescent interior is smooth and free of sand and grit. Sol Azul oysters boast a firm and plump meat with full flavor. The high salinity of these Baja beauties pairs wonderfully with citrus and/or heat-based spices.
Oysters by their very nature are a sustainable seafood choice. They feed exclusively on the abundant natural phytoplankton present in the water, avoiding the need for any artificial feeds or chemical products. Further, the techniques and facilities for shellfish aquaculture are of very low impact to the environment.
