Cape May Salt

Delaware Bay, New Jersey   View on Ocean Map

Most oysters from Delaware Bay are lacking in salt, but Cape May Salts are grown in bags staked to the beach in the less developed, saltier southern end of Delaware Bay, near Cape May, closer to the mouth and the Atlantic’s briny waters.

  1. Rating 4.5

    A Stalwart of mid-Atlantic oyster community. Excellent availability throughout the year. Decent size with a sweet brine and fatty meat.

  2. Rating 5

    As others have commented, briny, plump, and sweet. Additionally, a good size. These weren’t so large that they completely filled the mouth. Instead, they were just large enough to nicely fill without my mouth feeling overstuffed. It have me the opportunity to savor the taste, feeling, and finish. Great oyster.

    One of my all time favorites.

  6. Rating 4

    Very nice oyster this far south (yes, Cape May is pretty far south when it comes to quality oysters). Briny and sweet at the same time, with a pleasant, creamy, texture.

  7. Rating 5

    My all time favorite. The perfect combo of briny and creamy. Proud that they’re from my home state.

  8. Rating 5

    Huge fan of the consistency/mouth feel and sweet finish.
