Oysters are a good option. Oysters are exceptionally high in zinc, which aids the reproductive organs, skin and immune system. Eat lots of them if you are trying to fall pregnant, have compromised immunity, or low libido.
Oysters With Asian Vinaigrette [df, gf]
You will need:
- 2 TBSP TAMARI
- 1/2 TSP SESAME OIL
- 1/2 TBSP BROWN RICE VINEGAR
- 1 TBSP GINGER, GRATED
- 12 OYSTERS
- ICE, CRUSHED
- 2 TBSP SPRING ONIONS, JULIENNED
- ½ CUP CORIANDER LEAVES
Mix together the tamari, oil, vinegar and ginger. Arrange the oysters on a platter atop the ice. Spoon one teaspoon of the sauce into each oyster and garnish with spring onions and loads of fresh coriander.
- These oysters are also good steamed in a bamboo basket over simmering water. Place some wax paper in the basket and carefully lay the oysters and their topping on the paper. Put the lid on and steam them for about one minute.
