Medium Fresh Oysters | Live Box | Farmed on the West Coast | x12
DECADENCE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR
Oysters have long been one of the most pervasive symbols of opulence and wealth, but this hasn’t always been the case. As late as the 19th century oysters were cultivated and eaten by the working class, but as they grew in popularity, they became scarcer and more sought after. Today, Greenfish aims to, once again, make this delicacy more accessible to all South Africans. Our oysters are farmed off the west coast, which imparts the distinctive salty taste of wild oysters, but without the environmental impact.
12 x Medium Oysters (Approx. 76g-90g per oyster)
*Our shucked oysters will arrive with the lid (top shell) on. To remove the lid all you need is an oyster knife to work under the lid and run it along the edge.
Your Oysters will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge and use at your leisure (up to 2 days). If you would like your oysters shucked, please specify this in your order notes. Our shucked oysters arrive with the lid on the oyster, to stop the juices leaking out during transit, all you need to do is release the abductor muscle that keeps the lid down. We take great care when opening oysters, but some with softer shells may have breaks. If you order shucked oysters, please consume them on day of delivery.
Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.
*Our shucked oysters will arrive with the lid (top shell) on. To remove the lid all you need is a butter knife to work under the lid and run it along the edge.
All our oysters are cultivated on the west coast of South Africa. Not only does this mean that wild oyster populations are not depleted, but since oysters are filter feeders, they improve water quality where they are farmed. Research has shown that this type of aquaculture also helps stabilise the beds and provides food for migratory birds.

WOW - thats all I can say. If you love Oysters, dont think - order!
Lovely fresh oysters
Savoured every mouthful. Expertly packed and presented. Would like as ‘ large’ if available.
Loved it! The delivery was prompt and the response to my question about conditions for fresh keeping too. The oysters were sizeable and well packed. I’ll definitely order again.
The service was phenomenal especially as I ordered very last minute needing it for my daughter's matric pass celebration. Received order same day and they were absolutely delish, fresh and large size. Thrilled with my first experience and can't wait to order again. The ladies in the office need a pat on the back for their super kind and helpful service to this last-minute.com mom!!!
Services was exemplary, packaging very good, 2 days later after very well traveled oysters, ice still solid and very decent sized oyster
As good as last time. Totally fantastic!!

Delicious oysters, super fresh
Delivery so quick and easy Oysters super fresh and SO TASTY. Recommend highly
Very delicious, although they were not shucked (as advertised) so a little surprised when I served them up - had to eat em next day after some swearing and cutlery knife action. I love greenfish but please can you get this right - I wouldn't have bought unshucked oysters...
