A while ago, my friend woolly told me about the cheap frozen oysters (a packet cost about S$4) she bought from the supermarket. Though the oysters are small, they are decent, juicy and not fishy. I did a super quick oysters stir-fry with garlic and the results were great. For oysters lovers, this is an easy, quick and inexpensive fix whenever the oyster craving sets in.
