I am visiting my hometown Xiamen in China. Fresh oysters are harvested locally and are relatively plentiful. They are available all year round and are not considered to be a delicacy. It is time to spoil myself. Having oysters for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can never have too much of a good thing!

The locals usually cook the oysters to avoid the risk of raw seafood. There are many ways that you can cook it. BBQ oysters, oyster noodle soup, and fried oysters with eggs.

This soy sauce oyster is a very simple and classic Xiamen local dish that can not be found anywhere else. This recipe uses these flavor-packed Chinese ingredients: soy sauce, ginger, Chinese leek, and chili to enhance the sweetness of the oysters without losing out on nutrition.
