Raw Oysters

Raw oysters are one of those things I would have never tried or ordered without someone else pushing it on me. I won't even go into what people compare their aesthetics and texture to as I want you to try them if you never have. There are health risks to eating raw oysters and if you google them you can read all about it. There is also the whole myth of the raw oysters increasing ones sex drive. The FDA does not back this statement (really??) but they contain zinc, which is known to help naturally increase your testosterone levels. They also contain dopamine, a chemical that is known to naturally increase your libido. So there you have it folks. Alot of danger involved but don't we like to live on the edge???

12 raw oysters in their shell
4 tablespoons champagne or white wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons minced shallots or red onion
2 tablespoons minced fresh flat leaf parsley
Season salt and pepper

Mix the vinegar, onion and parsley in a small bowl with salt and pepper. Pour 1/2 teaspoon over each oyster and eat immediately.
