Traditionally, oysters have been classified as an aphrodisiac delicacy, either cooked or raw. Not everyone has an acquired taste for this seafood, especially, when is served raw. However, either way, if you have never tried it, give it a shot, just use the cooked version or my recipe, you will love it.
