Overview

Silver Lip Pearl oysters are gathered by hand (diving-assisted) in the North-West Shelf fishery of Western Australia. They are primarily grown for pearls and mother of pearl shell products. However they also produce a beautiful meat. The meat is a delicate taste, reminiscent of scallop. It is best suited to quick flash frying.
