Taste Friends

Combined with fish dishes, they are an interesting addition to the ingredients already available. Oyster Leaves can be used to lend a salty taste. They are excellent in surf and turf dishes, for instance. But they also make a challenging addition to coffee or chocolate. 

Origin

Oyster Leaves originate from the beaches of North-West Europe and America. The leaves offered by Koppert Cress are of a specially selected variety with exceptional flavour and texture.
