May 20, 2017 - Trip to Kadogawa in Miyazaki-ken [Grilled Oysters at Shunsen Kadogawa ]
May is Iwagaki (rock oyster) season in Kadogawa so we headed for Shunsenkura, a combination restaurant and local products store right on Route 10 on the north side of town. We bought a packages of oysters in the store and then headed around to the back were a covered porch with picnic tables and grills overlooks the harbor. The staff will help you cook the oysters, and you can order other food items from the menu (rice bowls, sashimi, shaved ice). We had grilled vegetables, onigiri, and seafood cooked in a white wine sauce in addition to our iwagaki. The oysters cook fast and should be eaten hot off the grill?so hot that you have to wear gloves to handle the shells! Use a knife to cut out the meat out of the shell, drizzle on a little hebesu juice (a local citrus fruit, similar to a lime) and enjoy!
