Malpeque

Source: Chef’s Resource

Malpeque Oysters are an Atlantic oyster from one of the Prince Edward Island oyster appellations in Canada. They are cultivated in the pristine glacial depths of Malpeque Bay. Malpeque oysters have a little more robust flavor profile than the typically light-bodied flavor of other Maritime Province oysters, but not so powerful a flavor as to scare new oyster eaters away. They are easy to eat with tender meats and a nice balance between ocean brininess and sweetness.

Harvest Location: Malpeque Bay, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Flavor Profile: Malpeque Oysters have a teardrop shaped shell with very tender meats. They are light-bodied with a crisp lettuce-like flavor, high brininess, and a clean, sweet finish.
