Wild Maine Belon Oysters
While only true Belon oysters come from the Belon River in France, this wild variety from Maine descends directly from the same prestigious lineage. Also known as "The European Flat," these plump, flavorful oysters were brought to Boothbay Harbor back in the 1950s. Here they adapted, survived and then thrived in the cold waters of the Maine coast. The meat has a distinctive, slightly metallic flavor—less briny than an eastern oyster, but still packing all the delicious taste of the sea.
