Oysters are the richest source of zinc available in the food supply. Zinc has many important functions in our bodies including wound healing and helping to fight off infections. It is also an anti-oxidant. The combination of omega-3s and zinc in the oysters makes a potent blend.

Try not to think of oysters as a luxury food that you may eat occasionally at a restaurant. Canned oysters are relatively inexpensive and can become a regular part of your diet. You can have them on toast or low fat crackers, add them to rice, or blend them to make a dip.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

4 slices of bread, crusts removed

4 tablespoons cottage cheese

1 teaspoon paprika

4 slices tomato, cut into 2, making 8 halves

1 can smoked oysters, well-drained

1 tablespoon parmesan cheese


Trim the crusts off the bread and cut each slice into 2, making 8 rectangles. Toast the bread.

Spread the toast with the cottage cheese and sprinkle with paprika.

Place ½ a slice of tomato on each rectangle.

Top with 1 large oyster or 2 small oysters.

Sprinkle each rectangle with ½ teaspoon of parmesan cheese.

Place under grill for about 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Serve immediately.
