Oyster is used as a common name for a number of distinct groups of bivalve molluscs which live in marine habitats. Some kinds of oyster are commonly consumed, cooked or raw, by humans as a delicacy. Oysters are an excellent source of zinc, iron, calcium, selenium as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin B12. For a high protein seafood dish, try making this oyster salad. (Wikipedia)
